Breggo Cellars Riesling 2010

Breggo Cellars Riesling 750ml 2010   
Sku: 1780202*

Founded in 2005 by Douglas and Ana Lucia Benitez-Stewart, Breggo Cellars specializes in vineyard designate Pinot Noir and Alsatian-style aromatic white wines from Mendocino County. They craft small lots of wine from Anderson Valley’s most critically acclaimed vineyards, including Savoy, Ferrington, and Donnelly Creek. Cliff Lede, the owner of his eponymous winery, purchased Breggo in 2009. Savoy Vineyard, a benchmark Anderson Valley vineyard was acquired in 2011. Spread over 44 acres, the vineyard is made up of 34 sub-blocks planted to a diverse blend of Dijon and Heritage clones of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Winemaker Ryan Hodgins has been with Breggo from its inception. He graduated UC Davis with a Master’s degree in Viticulture and Enology. After finishing his degree, Ryan worked at Hanzell Vineyards as the assistant winemaker and viticulturist. About the name, Breggo means sheep in Boontling, the folk language created in Anderson Valley a hundred years ago.

Tasting notes
Quintessential notes of wet stone and wild flower honey along with pear, passion fruit and sea salt are layered with flavors of ripe citrus and mango. Hints of lemon zest and minerality provide balance to the rich palate and finish.

Technical notes
Fruit from the Greenwood Ridge Vineyard was whole cluster pressed, fermented in stainless steel and aged in neutral oak barrels for six months.
