Earth Day SIP Certified Wine featuring Claiborne & Churchill Vintners.
The most recent bottling of Claiborne & Churchill 2014 Dry Riesling marks the thirty-second vintage of this signature wine. Their Alsatian approach to producing Riesling has made this wine one of their most beloved and sought-after wines in the Claiborne & Churchill line-up. Due to an earlier-than-average growing season, they picked the fruit in September (instead of October) from the cool climates of the Edna Valley AVA and Monterey County AVA. They then fermented and aged the Riesling in tank for 6 months. The youthful nature of this Riesling delivers bright, floral aromas and a mouthful of citrus fruit, ripe white peaches, and apple. The wine leaves the palate with a dry yet lingering finish. Its solid structure makes the 2014 Dry Riesling a perfect wine to pair with a wide variety of cuisines. As we enter grilling season, match this wine up with grilled salmon, chicken, vegetables, and even fruit. Alcohol:13.3% Retail: $28
