Red Tail Ridge, Riesling Pet Nat 2018
Penn Yann, New York
Riesling. This wine is a “pet-nat” meaning that it is bottled before indigenous fermentation is complete, which carbonates the wine in the bottle. The wine has a nose of pear, ginger spice, honeysuckle and lemon with some toast, melon and driven minerality on the palate. This wine (and it’s levels of sweetness and carbonation) can vary from bottle to bottle since it is fermented with native yeasts, unfined & unfiltered (therefore vegan), and not heat or cold stabilized. Red Tail Ridge employs many progressive sustainable farming practices and is LEED energy certified.
