Alexana 2014 Late Harvest Riesling
Lonesome Spring Ranch° in Washington°s Yakima Valley represents a dramatically di˛erent terroir, 200 miles NE of the ˜Revana Vineyard°.
The high-desert vineyard parcel allows us to mature the grapes on the vine to a level of ripeness and richness that is perfect for producing this unique expression of Riesling. Located just north of the Yakima River, the conditions in 2014 were perfect for the development of botrytis cinerea , the noble rot responsible for the world°s most iconic dessert wines.
The berries are hand-harvested and slowly pressed overnight to gently extract minute amouts of sweet juice from each berry. This meticulous process is slow and yields very little juice that is slowly fermented into a concentrated wine of gorgeous texture and vibrant personality. We recommend enjoying this complex wine at ÿnale of a meal.
