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.
