About Seaglass 2018 Riesling, Monterey/Santa Barbara
This was awarded a Silver Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and it was awarded 91 Points, Gold Medal in the West Coast Wine Competition.
Seaglass wines encapsulate the ocean air, the sandy coastline and the fresh acidity of cool-climate fruit along the Central Coast. Crafted from wind-swept vines that give nuanced flavors in the cellar and complex notes in the glass, the wines are an unmistakable expression of California’s coastal vineyards. Riesling grapes thrive in the cool-climate vineyards of Monterey and Santa Barbara counties. Crisp coastal air and low rainfall provide a longer growing season, giving Riesling plenty of time on the vine to develop its signature aromatics. At the winery, a cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks allowed the delicate varietal flavors to reach their ultimate expression.
This rich white shows an aromatic nose of ripe apricot, sweet peach and tropical fruit, framed by floral undertones. White flowers on the palate are supported by flavors of juicy apricot, peach and melon, with hints of honeysuckle. A balanced acidity leads to a lingering finish in an off-dry style.
