If you don't know your tropical fruits, this wine is about to give you a Caribbean island breakdown! Guava, candied banana, and bruised pineapple show prominently on the nose, and passion fruit, lime, and orange blossom decorate the palate. Add to that the smooth, lush mouthfeel a clean finish, and every little thing's gonna be alright!
At 1.2 planted acres, Riesling is the variety we grow the least of on the 2 Lads farm. The deep alluvial soils help to develop of a different flavor profile than Riesling grown elsewhere on Old Mission peninsula.
We whole cluster pressed the grapes and cold fermented the juice in stainless steel tanks to keep the clean, minerally style we prefer for the 2L Vineyard Riesling. Fermentation was stopped with a just a little subtle sweetness remaining to balance the bright acidity.
