2018 Bannister Cole Ranch Mendocino County Riesling (Previously $25)

SKU #1418233

An "orange wine" made with Riesling? It sounds wild, but this wine, from a small family operation in Healdsburg, is more food-friendly than way-out. With a little patience, and a lot of enological experience, some experiments just go right, very right. Winemaker's notes: "The Riesling was fermented on the skins and then remained on the skins for ten days of extended maceration. This gave the wine heightened color (orange tones) as well as more of the unique spiciness that Riesling is known for. We put it through full Malo-lactic fermentation which gives it increased balance against the intensity of the extracted skin tannins. Early flavor profiles of the Riesling are Quince, Pomello, tart apple, and all spice. It continues to evolve with bottle aging. Our Riesling has great food pairing capabilities, especially with spicy dishes, where most wines have limitations."

This unusual Riesling is a dry, mineral-inflected wine with less obtrusive tannin than you might think, given the "orange wine" treatment. It's got body, and, with a deep golden hue, it's not too orange, after all! Much better food pairing candidate than some of the sweeter domestic Rieslings.
