We like our Late Harvest Riesling a little sassy - full of ripe apricot and candied pineapple with just a hint of honey and a smooth, not-too-sweet finish. (The witty comebacks are up to you.)

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Fouch Vineyard is locates about 1.5 miles south of the 2 Lads farm on Smokey Hollow Rd. The Fouches planted 2 vineyard blocks - one in 2006, one in 2009 - totaling approximately 5 acres. The blocks have different soil profiles, slopes, and Riesling clones, which create a unique blend of flavors and aromatics.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were crushed and gently pressed immediately after harvest. The juice was divided among three stainless steel tanks, and each tank was inoculated with a different yeast strain to create different yet complementary fruit profiles. Fermentation in each tank was stopped at various levels of sweetness, and the final blend was made in February just prior to bottling.
