Thomas Pastuszak, as a neurobiology major at Cornell and classical pianist, was taking his MCATs and working in restaurants to pay off his student loans, when he was thunderstruck by the art and science of winemaking.
info from the producer:
"Each vineyard site (is) vinified entirely separately to best bring out individual character; from cold soaking decisions, to fermentation style, to storage in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels. After resting through winter and spring, the wines were blended together and bottled in early summer. The vineyard sites have a mix of mineral soil types ideal for dry Riesling, including: shale & gravel, shale & clay, sand over shale, and limestone & shale.
TASTING NOTES: A shimmering silver-yellow color, on the nose this Riesling displays supple fruit tones of golden apple, tangerine, lime zest & ginger, with racy mineral aromas of gravel, shale & limestone. Brisk acidity hits the palate, followed by flavors of peach, grapefruit pith & candied lemon, all leading to a long, savory mineral finish."
At Dep Wines we love dry Riesling and this is a great entry point. Mineral driven, bright, and complex - this is perfect for sipping on its own or paired with a multitude of foods from oysters to Thai cuisine.
