2011 The Maestro

2011 The Maestro
2011 The Maestro

Winemaker Notes: Lovely light golden color, the 2011 Maestro offers up an absolutely fantastic bouquet of apricot, honey, ripe pear, pineapple, honeysuckle, minerals, and a hint of tropical fruits. With a bit of air the wine shows hints of petrol, honey, white truffle, and mango. It is made in a classic auslese style. The laser-like focus of the acidity on the palate avoids any sense of heaviness. The rich, complex finish is long and vibrant. This wine should evolve gracefully for several years and drink well for at least a decade or two.

Fermentation: 70% stainless steel fermentation, 30% neutral oak fermentation.

Cooperage: aged sur lie for 6 months and in bottle for 1 year.

Cases Produced: 86 Cases of 375ml bottles produced.

Good full, deep straw. Gingery high tones to the perfumed lime blossom aroma. Very sweet and sexy on the palate, with distinctly high-toned flavors of orange marmalade and mango chutney framed by lively acidity. Finishes with an explosion of orange blossom and excellent length

The 2011 Riesling The Maestro is a decadently sweet wne made from 100% Riesling that was fermented primarily in stainless steel (~30% botrytis) and then aged, on lees, for six months prior to bottling. Exhibiting rich, full-throttle aromas and flavors of honeyed apricot, mango, orange blossom and assorted tropical fruits, it flows onto the palate with a rich, weighty texture that carries racy acidity and solid length. It’s a big, sweet dessert wine that carries itself beautifully. Drink now-2021.
