Grapes: 80% Riesling, 10% Pinot Blanc, 10% Gewurztraminer
Region: Sonoma, California
Notes from the winemaker:
Ring Leader keeps on giving. This is our second vintage working with Zabala Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County, and we are still counting our blessings to have met them! We fell in love with their Riesling last Summer, and originally wanted to base this orange wine around that fruit.
Last Vintage of Ring Leader was just Riesling and Pinot Blanc, but after working with McFadden Ranch Gewurtztraminer, we couldn’t help but add some into this blend as well. We combined all three grapes to make a well-rounded Alsatian blend that’s easy drinking for hot Summer nights.
