Robibero Artic Riesling

Always a big fan of Robibero Vineyards. Tiffany and Ryan run the day to day operations with their family. And Kristop Brown kicks in on the winemaking.

As this new winery continues to mature, it's clear that there is a new winery in town determined to create quality wine, and two young marketers, who are determined to make a serious go of it.

Evidence of their success was clear with the release earlier this year with Arctic Riesling. The wines is barrel aged for 8 months. This light, dry white has a wonderful tropical nose, with crisp acidity and pineapple notes. This is a unique wine, with a lovely, lovely finish. Complex, and perfect to pair with Asian dishes, but also perfect to pair with chicken or cheese. Also perfect to  drink by the fire, whether its inside on a cold winter night, or by the camp fire on a sultry summer's evening.
