Sweetness is made from hand-picked Riesling grapes sourced from Kick On Ranch in Santa Barbara County. 2013 was a great vintage, blessed by an even, long growing season that produced intense flavors while maintaining natural acids. The fruit for this wine was whole-bunch pressed, early in the morning to minimize damage to the juice. The skins were soaked in the press for a couple of hours to increase mouthfeel and viscocity. It was cold settled and fermented long, cold, and slow in stainless steel, then stopped with freezing temperature, leaving some natural residual grape sugar.
