Rita & Rudolph Trossen Madonna Purus 2016
Grapes are hand harvested and whole bunches are fermented in 1000-liter stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeast. The tanks are cooled by ambient air and fermentation takes place over about 6 months. The wine ages for about 11 months and is then bottled without fining or filtration and zero sulfur is added. Deep-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of ripe, yellow pear.On the palate the riesling reveals a sour-fruit character along with under-ripe pear.
