2018 Late Harvest Riesling (375ml)
Rich fragrances of jasmine and ripe apricot enchant the senses. Flavors of golden raisins, honey, and crème brûlée are balanced with graceful acidity. Full-bodied and opulent, the wine delivers a phenomenal mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish.
The Late Harvest Riesling comes from grapes picked as late as December as we leave them on the vine till the fruit resembles raisins and yields a sweet, concentrated juice. After a long and slow fermentation, the resulting wine is quite sweet, incredibly complex, and absolutely delicious.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Pioneers in the Napa Valley, the Trefethen family are champions of estate grown wines. For three generations, they have carefully tended to their land, employees, and customers, building a loyal following for their legacy of fine, age-worthy wines with a deep integrity of place.
Embodied in their approach is a profound respect for both people and place. This extends beyond the boundary of their estate, knitting them into the fabric of Napa Valley. Over the past 50 years, they helped establish the Napa Valley Agricultural Preserve, co-founded the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, took on leading roles within the Napa Valley Vintners and California Wine Institute, led the effort to build the viticulture and winemaking centers at Napa Valley College, supported the same at UC Davis, hosted the Napa Valley Cooking Class, and established the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley AVA. Their contributions to the wine industry go beyond the wines they make, and help inspire the Napa Valley to live up to its own great expectations.
