2014 White Goose Riesling
A beautifully layered white wine named after two white geese at the Triple “R” Ranch & Winery that are forever mates! Fearless and protective, these birds are known to honk loudly at visitors on ATV tours, redirecting the buggies from nearing their nests. This Riesling has impressively aged in the bottle and is a great example of aging character shining through. Sweet dried fruit, orange peel, nutty flavors and raisin radiate behind its primary fruit flavors of lemon, peach, pineapple, and nectarine.
Appellation: Texas High Plains
Aging: 17 months stainless steel tanks
Look: Star-bright color of light straw with green-tinged rim

Taste: On the palate lies a crisp expression of peach, mango and orange marmalade all balanced by it’s acidity and a long mouthfeel. The finish is a harmonious balance between the acidity and slight residual sugar.

Snow white feathers make them stand out among the red Texas clay. Fearless and protective, the White Geese at the Triple R Ranch are known to honk loudly and redirect ATV tours to avoid visitors from nearing their nests.
