Benevolent Neglect || California || Riesling
Sourced from a 45 year old site up near Ukiah, Mendocino, nearly 200m above sea level.
Fermented long and cool in stainless steel, with the ferment stopped dry, retaining 15.5g/l R.S. It’s exceptionally well balanced with the high acidity you’d expect from a Riesling. Wonderfully composed with plenty of depth and complexity, a firm favourite of ours yet in very limited supply. This is the last ever vintage of this wine as the farmer ripped up the vines and replaced them with Chardonnay stock after the 2019 harvest.
Best to secure your bottles quickly before they run out!
