2021 Prism Riesling
“Wine is sunlight held together by water.” - Galileo Galilee
This version of Prism was sourced from three Mendocino vineyards including Guinness McFadden’s organic vineyard in the Potter Valley, Vonarburg in Anderson Valley and Cole Ranch Vineyard. As usual, a riesling full of verve and spice. This will be your most versatile wine of summer.
+ The 2021 vintage was overall a moderately warm growing season. This is apparent in the lively nature of Prism with well-developed flavors—yet has a certain edginess to it.
+ The organically farmed vines at McFadden were planted in 1971 and today are big and burly. The clusters mature under a shady canopy, which provides protection and perfect dappled light.
+ We ferment and age this wine exclusively in stainless steel to preserve and perhaps even accentuate the raciness of it.
+ The 2021 version of Prism is a driven wine with pronounced citrus zest, apricot, pear and some lightly tropical notes.
+ Harvest Dates: September 5-17, 2021
