2014 Minus Five Riesling

Ripe, whole clusters of Riesling from Lone Star Vineyard are flash frozen at Minus Five degrees Fahrenheit then pressed with even, gentle pressure. Over the course of two days, the highly concentrated juice slowly dribbles out of the press and into a small tank for settling, then racked for slow, cool fermentation. Citrus peel, honey, and delicate floral aromatics flow into the intense middle palate full of sweet, silky, golden yellow fruits, all balanced with long, focused acidity.

2014 Spirithouse Riesling

Fermented to dryness and left upon its gross lees for 16 months in our oldest neutral oak barrels, Spirithouse Riesling is a wine of nuanced flavor and texture. Stylistically, we've taken a cue from our sparkling wine program by balancing naturally high acidity with supple autolysis. Jasmine floral, wet slate, and spicy nutmeg are balanced with deep layers of creamy concentration, all brought into focus with vibrating, juicy acid length. Serve at cellar temperature.

2014 Nuthouse Riesling

Lone Star Vineyard has three separate blocks of Riesling totalling just under seven acres of fruit, which amounts to less than 2% of our overall farming. Winemaking and blending is all about creating options and tools, so we have taken these three tiny blocks and divided them up into both stainless steel and neutral oak barrel fermentations to give us more tools to play with. The stainless steel versions are left with a hint of residual sugar, which emphasize fresh, pure, round fruit, while the neutral oak barrels are taken bone dry to bring the dichotomic elements of both mineral edge and subtle, creamy texture. Left on original lees for 16 months, we have continued to push the boundaries of texture in cool climate Riesling. White peach, orange blossom, and silvery minerality dance with pulsing, vibraceous length. Break out the Pepito de Ternera!

2013 Argyle Riesling

Entirely from Lone Star Vineyard, 2013 Argyle Riesling is full of citrus blossom, ginger, and honeycomb. The balance of residual sugar and acidity is achieved through the blending of barrels both bone dry and those containing residual sugar. The interplay of acidity and residual sugar inspires the salivaries to flow freely. Fleshy and round through the middle, the focused acidity brings an edgy nervosity to the long finish.
