STAFF PICK
Dill Vineyard sits on top of Redlands Mesa at 6300' amongst a sea of sagebrush and pasture. The vineyard consist of 3.5 acres of Riesling and is managed by Donald Shultz and family. The Shultz family took over the vineyard in 2018 and their 7 kids have all been working hard to restore the vineyard and the apple orchard on the property.

So this wine is something from the the kids and something for the kids....when they are of age of course.

This is an experimental skin-contact wine in which we co-fermented two separate harvests - an early harvest to extract the acid and citrus we wanted, and a late harvest to bring out the more oxidative petrols. 

All our grapes come from our organically farmed vineyards. All vineyards are either certified or in the certification process. If a wine is not labelled organic or in conversion it’s likely because a new vineyard didn’t make it in the certification process in time. The grapes from our own vineyards are harvested by hand. All 2Naturkinder wines are bottled without filtration or the addition of SO2 or anything else. 

Hits you at the nose and reveals a tropical party of orange, pineapple, citrus and gives way to racy acids and perfumey petrols that lead you into the chalky tannins. It's a fun wine on the surface but let it open up in glass and it will keep you quessing!
