Santa Barbara County, California, USA
Sourced from Kick on Ranch in the most south west slope in the vineyard, facing the ocean. The Vandenberg cuvée is named after the airforce base down the road, and is notable for its inclusion of grapes affected by Botrytis (10-15% inclusion). Fermented in steel and aged on its fines lees for 8 months, this dry white has incredible Alsatian aromatics, tropical pineapple fruits, slight brioche, and vibrant acidity. A true benchmark for California Riesling.
