Wirz Vineyard was planted to Riesling in 1965. Own-rooted, head trained and dry farmed in decomposed granite overlaying limestone at about 1000 ft elevation, this is a true California gem.
Medium yellow color, nose smells of yellow plum, sliced raw almond, green tea, mineral and Meyer lemon, medium body with good amount of acidity.
This is our foot treaded, non-ML Riesling. Fruit is from the old Wirz Vineyard in the Cienega Valley AVA: own rooted, dry farmed, and head trained in decomposed granite over laying limestone.
