2016 Corral Creek Vineyard Riesling

2016 Corral Creek Vineyard Riesling

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

A classic Corral Creek Riesling. The aromas are powerful yet delicate.  Initial notes of Daphne flowers and Turkish delight evolve into lemon/lime and sweet candied ginger. The palate is perfectly balanced between the crisp, fresh acid and the viscosity that a hint of residual sugar adds. The finish is full bodied yet leaves your mouth watering for more. This wine is a show stopper now but has the bones to age for years to come.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW 

This is the year of Earliest Ever. The winter was warm, budbreak was early and 2016 never looked back—bloom, veraison and harvest, all early records. Harvest began in August and was done before October. Although early, the growing season wasn’t as hot as the prior three, but still the same new warm norm. Fruit is fully ripe but not overripe, moderate alcohols, good enough acids and intense, easily extracted, dense wines from 15% smaller berry sizes and yields. Potentially an excellent-to-classic vintage.
