Harvest is done by hand and winemaking methods are what they consider traditional. Fermentation is with ambient or “wild” yeast. There is considerable use of stems in fermentation especially with red wine, but to a lesser extent with white wine as well.
A beautiful yet rustic complexity always makes Bloomer Creek Rieslings stand out within a blind tasting of peers, and it's particularly prominent here. While bright and citrusy, it's also waxy and phenolic, touched with a hint of tannin and lingering earth tones. Dancing and delicate in texture, it's a fascinating wine to ponder.
