To riesle or not to riesle

“…So there I am, just riesling my own business, when this dude walks by and chucks a wiffle ball at me!”

“Wait, what?”

“That’s right man, just totally out of nowhere. It didn’t hurt or anything, but doubleyou-tee-eff, y’know?”

“No, not that. Did you say you were ‘riesling your own business’?”

“Yeah, totally. I wasn’t bugging the hombre at all. Don’t even know who dude was.”

“No. What does ‘riesling’ mean?”

“It’s a type of wine, bro. Like Radog Santa Lucia Highlands Riesling – one of my faves.”

“I know that riesling is a type of wine. I mean how you used it in that first sentence.”

“Oh, like, ‘The bicyclist went riesling down the cliff’?”

“I guess so, though that doesn’t really clarify anything.”

“It just means…riesling. You know. Like, ‘The horse was neither galloping nor cantering, but riesling.”

“OK, wow. This is becoming increasingly confusing.”

“Nah, bro, you definitely know what it means, maybe I’m just saying it weird. Riesling.”

“Riesling.”

“Riesling.”

“Riesling.”

“Yeah, that’s it. It’s just the gerund of the verb ‘to riesle.’”

“To riesle?”

“Yeah, like ‘Aw man, I would totally slackline with you guys today, but I’ve got to riesle my storm windows.’”

“Wow. Your examples are extremely malbec.”

“Wh-wh-wh-whaaaaaaaaat?”

Dominant aromatics are floral with white rose and orange blossom taking the lead - reminiscent of Gewürztraminer if there was just a bit more of a spice note - and then a strong candied citrus note emerges. On the palate, the wine is very sexy with the residual sugar balancing the active crispness. The mid-palate is particularly fetching - sweet and smooth with an almost honeycomb taste.

Winery Details

Tudor Wines

Founded:
2000
Owners:
Dan and Christian Tudor
Location:
Santa Barbara, CA
Every year our grandfather Tudor used to make wine for his friends and family. It’s a tradition. The Tudor family has been growing grapes and lavender – and making wine on the Island of Hvar in Croatia – for over 2,000 years. The Tudors began growing grapes in California early in the 1900′s and continue to operate one of the largest table grape vineyards in the country.
 
In an increasingly mechanized world, there are still a few handcrafted products that stand out. Fine wine is one of them. At Tudor Wines, we select fruit from family-owned vineyards and transform it into wine using traditional techniques. These include small fermentations mixed by hand and aging in French barrels. The resulting wine has a purity of expression that cannot be duplicated on a larger scale.
