Haarmeyer Wine Cellars 'Wirz' Riesling 2020 (Sacramento, California)
Ready to get weird? The folks at Haarmeyer source these grapes from the coveted Wirz Vineyard, where granite and limestone lend a mineral character like that of classic German rieslings. But the similarities end there: extended open-top fermentation in whole clusters as well as 12 months aging on lees gives this dry orange wine a color, grip, and complexity that set it far apart from your usual rieslings. Rustic but with balanced acidity, this wine bursts with dried orange fruits and autumnal forest floor aromas.
Food pairings: Catalan cannelloni gratin with bechamel, chicken tagine with apricots and green olives, skirt steak with poblanos, arros negre
