Trefethen Dry Riesling 2022
Trefethen Dry Riesling
"Vibrant and refreshing, this is the most transparent wine we make, a pure expression of our estate vineyards. We produced our first Riesling in 1974, made in a distinctively dry and crisp style. Bright and aromatic, it is marvelously food-friendly and cellar-worthy." - Trefethen Estate
This Dry Riesling is crisp and zesty, showing beautiful notes of lemon, lime, and spring flowers. The nose explodes with fresh aromas of lemongrass, ginger, and white pepper. It’s balanced with refreshing acidity and an elegant finish.
Food Pairing: Though this is a versatile wine, it’s perfectly paired with lighter cuisine. Try simple fish, chicken, or pasta dishes with citrus flavors and avoid strong tomato-based sauces. Winery Chef Chris Kennedy suggests enjoying this wine with our Dungeness Crab Salad with Tart Apple and Toasted Ciabatta.
Catherine Trefethen, their First Lady, was Welsh. Her loves for wine, gardens and family were the inspiration for our estate in Napa Valley's Oak Knoll District, and though she has departed, her spirit is still felt, especially in the cool foggy mornings when mist envelops the vineyard and our minds tend towards whimsical imaginings.

“A clear commitment to the grape in this style is evident in the glass. Delicate floral aromas lead to a pure Riesling flavor expression and a finish that has great push and intensity. While it’s a delight now, extended aging will reap rewards… We need more of this domestically!” – Rich Cook, July 2021
