"The 2018 Cole Ranch Riesling was whole-cluster pressed to tank, where the juice was cold settled for 48 hours before being racked to neutral wood barrels for fermentation. For whatever reason, Cole Ranch has always been a slow fermenter, and 2018 proved to be no different – I got only two of the four barrels sulfured before Christmas, while the other two barrels didn’t finish primary fermentation until late January. The 2018 is beautifully fragrant, with a dizzying array of aromas: white flowers, lime zest, peach, mango, and fresh ginger. And, like the German Grosses Gewächs Rieslings that we love so much, the wine is a study in tension and richness, with a few grams of residual sugar retained to balance the abundant acidity." - Winemaker
