In 1858, Emil Dresel brought the first Riesling cuttings to America and planted them on what is now the SCRIBE Estate in Sonoma, CA. In homage we planted two acres in 2007 on the southwest facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain with an additional expansion in 2016 bringing our total acreage just shy of four acres. Our sustainably farmed Riesling is planted to clones Neustadt 90, 110, and 17 on St. George and SO4 rootstock on soils composed of both volcanic tuff and Huichica loam.
2020 meteorological data: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines' growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of verasion. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
20.3 °Bx | pH 3.03 | TA 9.0 g/L | 11.5% alc.
