The near perfect ripening season in the fall of 2015, with warm, sunny days and cool nights was ideal for developing one of the nicest Riesling crops we’ve harvested at Alba.
Fermentation was slow and cold to retain all of the rich, ripe fruit character. The finished wine, while slightly sweet, is well balanced due to the high acidity of the grapes and exhibits a wonderful tropical aroma with hints of mango and pineapple on a long friendly finish. Our 2015 Riesling is a classic example of what this versatile grape has to offer.
Alba Riesling goes especially well with cheese and fruit, seafood, or simply for enjoying with good friends.
