The 2020 vintage began with mild winter conditions followed by an early and ideal spring. The growing season was hot, dry, and long resulting in fruit that came in clean and ripe. The perfect season for our Winemaker, René Van Ede's inaugural vintage! This unique style of Riesling was achieved by drying a portion of the Riesling (19%), then pressing this portion 2 months later. Following being pressed the juice was kept very cold in stainless steel and not inoculated with any yeast, allowing the natural sugars to remain instead of fermenting into alcohol. This juice was then blended with traditionally fermented Riesling resulting in a light alcohol, off-dry Riesling for you to enjoy!
A nice light option (only 8.7% alcohol), this wine is lovely just on it's own. The Sussreserve Riesling also pairs perfectly with baked brie topped by pomegranate and pistachios, porchetta on a bun with apple chutney, grilled pork chops, roast chicken, and even classic New York style cheesecake.
