2009 - Bonterra Riesling
- * Style: Med-Sweet
- * Type: Table
- * Region: California
We are pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity to experience the character that our organic grapes can bring to a great Riesling. While there are various styles of Riesling from all over the world, we choose four styles that really stood out and that we thought would work well with our Bonterra philosophy. From there, we created our first Bonterra Riesling made from organically grown grapes. We think we got it right, and hope you do, too!
Our Riesling has aromas of white flowers, apple, pear, peach, honey and clove with an underlying minerality and classic Riesling spice. In the mouth, it is a balance of crisp acidity and subtle sweetness with a long rich finish.
Bonterra’s name literally means “good earth” and the winemakers at Bonterra agree that when the vineyards are healthy and full of life, the grapes are just naturally more flavorful. At Bonterra, we passionately believe that organic grapes make better wine. Bonterra has been producing wine from 100% organically grown grapes since 1993. All of our grapes are grown using certified organic practices, such as composting, cover crops, and biodiversity. These organic practices give us grapes that offer a quality of fruit and vibrancy of taste that allow us to create wines that express the purity and intensity of each varietal’s unique character. In every sip of Bonterra, you can taste our natural commitment to producing wines of great taste and excitement, which is why we believe they are among the best wines you’ll experience.
