This is the first Reserve style Riesling we’ve made from our 17 Valley vineyard and the first we’ve hand harvested. We’re very pleased with the result. It shows tremendous varietal character, and the typical 17 Valley terroir, inside a very elegant framework.

Bouquet: The wine shows intense, sweet fruit, typically Riesling aromas of lemon and lime with a distinctive vineyard character of tangelos. Typically strong 17 Valley minerality and umami characters also come through as an almost raw meat character.

Palate: The palate has huge initial impact with weight, complexity and minerality, It’s off-dry with acid to balance and a good long finish.

Wine Notes

Winemaker Notes: Made from free-run juice, cold settled prior to racking into fermentation, in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation is conducted very slowly, at low temperatures, to build weight and complexity.

Viticulture Notes: Only Grove Mill wines of exceptional character are designated Grand Reserve. The grapes are picked by hand and crafted by the Winemakers who take the utmost care to preserve and express the characters of our 17 Valley vineyard.
