2016 Riesling - Tango Oaks - Lees Reserve

Available:  In Stock $28.00
Size: 750 ml
Inspired by the ‘Reserve’ series Urziger Würzgarten Rieslings from Dr. Loosen, where the wines are aged on the full fermentation lees for multiple years in homage to winemaking of the early 20th century. This connection is all the more apt, given that the spiciness of Tango Oaks Rieslings have led to the joke that the site is our own “Hectorwürzgarten.” Somewhat counterintuitively, despite the extra time on lees this bottling retains a brighter and more tense core than its earlier-bottled, stainless steel counterpart. Call it the surprising regenerative power of lees, the wisdom of prior generations of German winemakers, or simply delicious; but this is an experiment we’re happy to make every year. RS 0.2% TA 7.65 g/l pH 3.24 ALC: 13.%
