Tasting notes

If Chardonnay is a lap dance, then Riesling is a slow-burning tantric orgasm of flavor. -Terry Thiese

Birdie leads with little bombs of white flower blossoms, lime, clean crisp apple, rolls into peach and Asian pear, honeysuckle and ginger, and finishes with crushed rocks. Delicious now, but will age forever. So versatile it should be tried with everything, everything.

Food Pairing: Sushi, duh; after lots of red wine so you can feel your tongue again.

Movie Pairing: The Original Blade Runner

Birdie was the brainchild of our winemaker Linn Scott during his first harvest at the helm in 2012. Named after our senior family pet, a remarkable old cat, the 2013 Birdie was awarded 94 points and the rank of #7 wine in the world in 2014 by Wine Enthusiast. It is crafted to resemble classic Alsatian style dry Rieslings. Our go to for sushi and Thanksgiving. Our suspicion is that it will age beautifully for upwards of twenty years.
