2022 Double L Riesling
Conscientiously farmed since the original plantings in 1997, today the Double L is the only certified organic vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Located at the northern end of the AVA, the vineyard’s unique north-south row orientation provides optimal wind and sun exposure.
Our riesling grapes were foot stomped and left to macerate over night, then the juice was cold settled after gentle pressing. Freshness and bright fruit character were preserved by cold fermentation, which was then arrested by chilling to achieve an off-dry style and low alcohol.
In the glass, the 2022 Double L Riesling displays a graceful, appealing nose of honeysuckle, white peach, and guava. Characteristic riesling flavors of meyer lemon and apricot work beautifully with the wine’s opulent aromatics. This wine’s style starts with subtle sweetness, yet finishes bright and dry (much like a traditional German “Kabinett”). It is a natural pairing for spicy Asian cuisine or Roquefort cheese.
