Vines planted in stony, impossibly poor soils without much to drink except morning dew tend to create intensely focused, low-yielding fruit. The 2011 Seifried Riesling is such an animal, er, plant.
With fruit sourced from two select, non-irrigated sites, the Brightwater Vineyard and the Redwood Valley Vineyard, this delightful Riesling highlights varietal character with succulent notes of lemon, wildflowers, tropical and stone fruit, held in tension by a clean, brilliant beam of acidity. The perfect Riesling to complement a spicy Indonesian rijstafel.
