2019 Sussreserve Riesling VQA

Our Sussreserve Riesling is an easy drinking and approachable style of Riesling. Despite its approachability, creating the perfect balance in an off-dry Riesling is challenging.  Utilizing the Sussreserve winemaking technique is part of what makes this wine so popular.  This method calls on the winemaker to add unfermented Riesling juice to the dry finished Riesling prior to bottling.  The addition serves three purposes: it gives the wine weight and dimension, it increases the sweetness of the wine naturally and it slightly reduces the alcohol percentage.  The amount of juice added varies year to year, depending on the sweetness and acidity of the base wine.

The aromatics of this wine are a true standout.  It is fruit forward with notes of pineapple, nectarine, star fruit and lemon zest.  The nose follows through on the palate with further tropical fruit characteristics and an additional weight that you don’t find in most Rieslings.

On the finish there is sweetness up front, followed by a lingering citrus zest.

This vintage is enjoyable with poultry dishes such as lemon or herbed chicken.  It is also superb with spicy dishes, such as Indian curries.
