Stirm "Kick-On Vineyard" Riesling 2018
Riesling｜Santa Barbara County
For the unfamiliar, the Kick-On vineyard is one of the coolest (literally and figuratively), highly-sought-after sites in Santa Barbara County. Stirm Wine Co. farms their plots of Riesling organically, insisting that the "two best tools" they use in the vineyard are simply their hands. No chemicals, no machinery; every bunch is hand-harvested to ensure optimal ripeness and quality.
Small wonder, then, that this wine costs as little as it does considering the love and effort that goes into it.
It's a perfectly dry Riesling – an almost salty finish – full of green citrus, lychee, apple skin and spice. Beautifully textured, low-ABV, bright and clean, it's all here, a perfect poolside sipper and ridiculously food-friendly for balmy outdoor dinners.
