Brave New Wine Hercules & Sunshine Riesling 2019

Sees some skin contact before being pressed off to a ceramic egg and a new French oak barrel for maturation on lees.It's floral and spice tinged, quite unlike other Riesling from within, and without.

Layered, textured, cascading in waves across the palate. As pretentious as that sounds, instead see it as saying: f**king delicious. I make few apologies for the profanity.

Some residual spiced nuance - indicative of that use of some portion of new barrel - just adds depth to the layering. 91
