The 2019 Riesling is the epitome of what makes Bench Riesling great, with an unexpected and uncommon mouth-filling weight and texture.

Nose: The nose explodes with beautiful lemon rind, lime leaf, nectarine, nutmeg, and honeysuckle aromas.

Palate: The nose continues on the palate while adding green apple, honeycomb, cumin, white lilac, and the distinctive chalky minerality of the Twenty Mile Bench.

Finish: As the wine sweeps across the palate towards the finish, a bright green leafiness and flinty gravel appear in waves, leading to an amazing, crunchy finish.

Pairing: With a hint of sweetness, Riesling is a great match to help tame down the heat in spicy dishes like Indian, Thai, or Mexican dishes.

2022 was a warm, long, and relatively dry season characterized by small crop levels on the vines. This resulted with low volumes, but very intense wines with fantastic natural acidity.

Harvested on September 30th, the grapes were gently pressed in stainless steel tank and allowed to settle for 2 days before being racked off lees. After being inoculated with a selected yeast and fermented at a very cool temperature in order to preserve freshness and aromatics, the wine was split between 2 different vessels (neutral French oak barriques & stainless steel tank) to be aged on lees for 7 months. The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was bottled in April 2022.
