Aromatically enticing with rich tropical notes wrapping themselves around the citrus and typical floral herbaceous tones of the Picone vineyard.
Glorious, dry, warm, long, nothing to complain about...unless of course you are Riesling and like a little shade, a few clouds, some cool night, some relief.
Harvest: September 27 Brix at Harvest: 20.7°
That said, 2016 is a growing season not to complain about. Low humidity brings clean, healthy vineyards and at the end of the day the earliest harvest on record for this vineyard which just meant a longer sleep on lees over the winter. Complex and now and forever.
