Located in the well-drained foothills above the Salinas Valley, the Santa Lucia Highlands Appellation is California’s most distinctive region for growing terroir-driven wines. Strong afternoon winds and coastal fog originating from nearby Monterey Bay flow through the AVA, resulting in one of the longest growing seasons in North America. This unique combination of abundant sunshine and truly cool climate creates wine with intense flavors and balanced acidity.

Our riesling grapes were gently pressed and cold settled. Freshness and bright fruit character were preserved by cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, which was arrested by chilling down the wine to achieve an off-dry style and low alcohol.

In the glass, the 2020 Double L Riesling displays a graceful, appealing nose of jasmine, green apple, and lemon balm. Traditional riesling flavors of white peach and honeysuckle work beautifully with the wine’s opulent aromatics. The wine’s style starts with subtle sweetness, yet finishes bright and dry (much like a traditional German “Kabinett”).  This wine is a natural pairing for spicy Asian cuisine or Roquefort cheese.
