2021 SRH Riesling
Sta. Rita Hills
93 points & Double Gold - OC Fair Commercial Wine Competition
Riesling's allure over other white wine is the necessary precision and attention to detail that goes into making this wonderfully versatile noble grape as well as maintaining its racy acidity and interestingly complex flavor profile.
Winemaker Bruce McGuire creates his Dry Riesling from grapes sourced exclusively from the Lafond Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. A unique blend of calcium rich marine sediment and river deposited soil contributes to the fruit’s well-developed minerality.
McGuire limits the sugar levels, and uses stainless steel fermentation to highlight the bright fruit in this dry Riesling.
