Vineyard Notes
On their first holiday together to Napa Valley and the Bay area, Jeff and Decoa came across the sculpture of Ex Nihilo at an art gallery in San Francisco. They immediately fell in love with the carving of Ex Nihilo and its translation, a Latin word meaning 'out of nothing.' Frederick Hart’s original Ex Nihilo, depicting creation, adorns the west façade of the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC. Jeff and Decoa decided at that moment that Ex Nihilo would be the perfect name for the winery that they had discussed and dreamed of having. Jeff felt that the name would suit their winery, as it would have to be created from nothing, with respect to their pocket book.
Production Notes
True to traditional style Rieslings, the fruit was hand harvested and sorted followed by gentle pressing for maximum extraction. The free run juice then went through a cool, two week fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The grapes were handpicked off our Lake Country property.
Winemaker Notes
100% Estate grown, this is a Riesling that will delight now, but will also age nicely.
Food Pairing Notes
If a dish is so intense or fiery that beer seems the only option, try an off-dry Riesling instead. The extra sugar in the wine counters the heat, while the chiles in the dish make the wine taste less sweet.
