2012 Riquewihr Lost Slough Vineyard

The fruit of Lost Slough

We got no fruit from Lost Slough in the difficult year of 2011. This is our first Riq since 2010. We have gone in a new direction this year, based on smaller experiments in previous years. We fermented 100% of the wine in neutral barrels, and aged it in the same for five months. The wine is very powerful and bass-driven. It has no floweriness, certainly no potpourri. Instead, it has a high-degree of minerality, and though it is a very clean wine, it has the funk of Gewurz. Still great for the dance floor.
