'11 Dry Riesling
On the nose, aromas of pineapple and honey mingle with hints of grapefruit and honeydew. Fresh flavors of pear, grapefruit and green apple explode on the palate. These intense flavors help lead to a dry and crisp finish. This wine pairs perfectly with mildly spicy, flavorful foods such as Thai, Cuban or Moroccan dishes.
Mendocino County experienced cooler than normal temperatures and some unusual spurts of rain during the 2011 growing season. Despite this, when the time was right, the grapes ripened into beautiful clusters. The fruit for this vintage of the Clif Family Winery Riesling came from Pauli Ranch in Porter Valley, located about 60 miles north of Healdsburg.
This wine was fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks for 8 months thus helping preserve its lush fruit character and balanced acidity.
