Lot #422. Ryme Ribolla Gialla Vare Vineyard 2012

Description: Consists of 9 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 17 ECB.
"Destemmed and fermented on skins and left for extended maceration for six months then pressed and aged in neutral barrels for an additional 18 months. Spiced, crushed-almond aromatics with pear and apricot-skin accents on the palate. Nicely textural, non-aggressive tannins. Delicious and nuanced with nice balance. Ryme has made an elegant example of a skin-contact white with this wine. Will benefit from air upon opening. Perfect to serve with food." Elaine Chukan Brown, JancisRobinson.com, Aug 2015
Notes: "In 2001, George Vare was given a few sticks of the budwood from Josko Gravner and grafted it into his vineyard. Steve [Matthiasson] started overseeing the vineyard in 2002, helping to further propagate the vines, and falling in love with the variety in the process. Gary and Cynthia Bengier purchased the the vineyard in 2014 from Elsa Vare after George passed away and were excited to continue the tradition. Certified Organic." - Matthiasson.com
