J. Brix The Augur Kick On Ranch Vineyard Riesling 2013

9.016 ratings on Delectable
$25

Raised mostly in neutral French oak, with a bit of stainless steel in the mix, the Augur - completely dry, by the by - is a wine made from a place we believe is perfect for this grape to grow. We feel greatly privileged to assist in its transition to transcendence. Unfined, unfiltered, with no cold-stabilization. Naturally occurring tartrate crystals will form and settle in the bottle upon extended refrigeration. 11.2% alcohol. 250 cases made.

Practically vibrates with fresh, bone-dry acid-driven nerviness

CVed and then opened 12/5/17. Blast of white fruits and minerals and stones on nose. Hint of petrol. Steely with bite on palate and long finish. Impressive Riesling from California! Seems to reflect that sunshine and ocean salinity instead of slate. Nose opens to almost white burgundy profile. Very interesting. Another great Acker 8. 250 cases. Unfiltered etc and a bit cloudy and precipitates.

Screaming acidity, and I really enjoyed the use of oak. It was both familiar and entirely new, which made it a treat to drink

Too tart for me, but goes well with spicy food. Grapefruit.

Thanks for this one too @Jody Towe @Emily Towe had the crew banking on Alsatian Riesling. Ripping lemon acid and granny Smith apples. Still lovely Riesling petrol to boot.

Nice tasting of J Brix wines at 3rd Corner Encinitas. @Jody Towe and @Emily Towe continue to impress - nice set of wines from Santa Barbara, San Louis Obispo and San Diego Counties.
