2012 Trisaetum Riesling Coast Range Vineyard

Wine: "This off-dry Riesling comes from the cool, steep and rocky slopes of our 22-acre dry-farmed Coast Range Estate Vineyard; home to an ancient mix of volcanic and marine soils." - Winery Winery: "In early 2006, James Frey, with help from noted winemaker Josh Bergstrom, began work on the design of Trisaetum's winery. From the outset, the goal was to construct a facility that allows a winemaker to blend old world tradition and new world innovation. After several months and nine drafts, a floor plan and design philosophy were eventually turned into the 13,000 square foot facility that exists today. James is fortunate to have at his disposal a wide array of tools to craft Trisaetum's distinctive Pinot Noir and Riesling." - Winery Vineyard Philosophy: "We consider Trisaetum’s vineyards first, believing that great wine requires an obsession about first producing superior fruit from one’s vineyard. Our wines represent as purely as possible what our estate vineyards have to reflect; Pinot Noir and Riesling, more than any other grapes, express the specific characteristics of the soil and climate in which they are grown. Farming sustainably and without irrigation, we attempt to carefully manage our vineyards so that we are able to achieve a concentration of flavors and an expression of place in our wines." - Winery [+]
