Stirm Kick-On Vineyard 'eøølian' Riesling 2021 (Santa Barbara County, California)
Great Riesling is a balancing act, and Ryan Stirm is walking the tight rope gracefully with this terrific example from Santa Barbara County.
Ripping acidity is balanced out by ripe textured tropical and stone fruit with tart orchard fruit around the edges and straight-line minerality to a long finish with faint notes of almond and beeswax.
This Riesling is bone dry with no added sulfites.
Food: Crispy-skin duck confit, Roasted bone marrow, Beer braised short ribs w/mustard spätzle.
