2016 Maddalena Riesling, Monterey
Maddalena Riesling reveals aromas of apricot, honey, and wildflowers. The rich mouth greets the palate with fresh fruit flavors of pear and green apple. This elegant wine balances natural acidity and sweetness. In creating Maddalena Riesling, the alcoholic fermentation is stopped before the yeast has converted all of the natural grape sugar into alcohol. In doing so, this arrested fermentation allows the natural sweetness of the wine to be maintained. Grape juice concentrate is not added. Therefore, we preserve the individual flavors and terroir of each parcel of land.
Sustainability is our top priority. Our Paso Robles and Monterey vineyards are certified sustainable by CSWA. At our Paso Robles winery, solar panels provide 100% of the needed electricity, and wastewater is effectively reclaimed and recycled for additional uses.
The San Antonio Winery Centennial Blend comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French and American oak barrels.
Riesling is famous for its flexibile nature when it comes to food pairing. Try our Maddalena Riesling with a lobster roll, a BLT, or even spicy chicken tacos.
