2019 SeaGlass Monterey/Santa Barbara County Riesling

2019 SeaGlass Monterey/Santa Barbara County Riesling

¥2,530 (incl. tax)

Intensely-flavored, yet light-bodied, delicate and mineral laden, Riesling excels as an aperitif or as a dinner wine – especially a fine Japanese meal. Besides sparkling wine and (maybe) Japan’s own Koshu, it’s hard to think of a better wine to accompany sushi, sashimi, tempura, or shabu-shabu. Seaglass Riesling comes from cool vineyards in Monterey and Santa Barbara counties, where the coastal breezes and low rainfall encourage the grapes to develop the aromatics, vibrance and minerality we look for in a Riesling. The distinctive blue glass bottle signals a casual spirit, but this wine will add a refreshing dimension not only to Japanese cuisine but also to spicy Asian or Latin dishes, smoked salmon, or lobster salad.

Winery


Winery Description

They say that “life’s too short for cheap wine.” But who really has the energy (or the pocketbook) to drink only the most artisanal wines? In fact, we’re often in situations where we can’t simply open our high-scoring, well-aged, collectable wines - a weeknight, after a soccer game or when a friend just happens to pop in. Named for the jewel-like, naturally-polished glass stones you might discover on a beach, SeaGlass wines are made for good times with friends or family, when an inexpensive but enjoyable wine can add surprise and joy to an otherwise mundane occasion. They are lively, flavorful, and well-made; easy to drink and “anxiety-free” to open. Part of the Trinchero Family Estates portfolio of wineries, SeaGlass produces Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from excellent vineyards in Santa Barbara and Monterey, near the Pacific coast, where the climate is cool, the growing season long, and the wines fruity and crisp. These wines are perfect with food. Medium-bodied, full of flavor and bright acidity, they match a wide range of Asian, Mediterranean, European and Latin American cuisines.

Owning & Enjoying


Tasting notes

Honey and jasmine notes highlight aromas of apricot, peach and tropical fruit. The palate is crisp with flavors of juicy apricot, peach and melon. Acidity and minerality give structure to the wine that finishes slightly off-dry.

Production


Vinification

The must was fermented in stainless steel at cold temperatures; care was taken at every stage to limit contact with air in order to preserve and express maximum freshness and varietal fruit character.
