Winemaker's Notes

Intensely aromatic, this wine shows typical ripe Riesling characteristics, including honey, apricot, and white flowers. Tangerine, jasmine, and coriander seed appear in the nose, as the palate turns to tropical flavors evocative of guava and pineapple. Mild sweetness is balanced by a bright core of tangy citrus for a mouth-watering, sweet and sour finish

John's Notes

You may have noticed we’ve featured more than a few wines from the McBride Sisters over the past few months. Why?  The answer is simple – it’s easy to support producers with a commitment to inclusivity and social awareness, who care for the environment, and above all else, who make really good wine

The Black Girl Magic Riesling 2020 is no exception. As you would expect from a Riesling, aromatics of lemon, ripe peach, grapefruit, and white flowers jump from the glass enticing that first sip.  On the palate, those same bright fruits are joined by streaks of pineapple, honey, apricot, minerality, and balancing acidity to create an easy to drink, semi-sweet wine

Nerdy Details

Winemaker: McBride Sisters

  • Unaware that the other existed, half-sisters Robin and Andrea were raised in wine regions of California and New Zealand; independently developing an appreciation for the craft of winemaking
  • They eventually found each other, and since 2005, The McBride Sisters’ mission has become clear—to transform the industry, lead by example, and cultivate community, one delicious glass of wine, at a time. Over time, McBride Sisters has grown into what is not only the largest Black-owned wine company in the United States, but one of the most inclusive, accessible, socially aware and sustainable
  • Black Girl Magic is more than a phrase. It’s a feeling. A look. A taste. Our Black Girl Magic collection is an ode to our culture and story, inspired by the magic and resilience of Black women, to be enjoyed by all

Variety:  100% Riesling

Region: Central Coast, California

Climate/Vintage:

  • Climate/Vintage: Cooled by ocean air running through gaps in coastal mountain ranges, the Central Coast is large and diverse, and includes sub-regions such as the Monterey, San Luis Obispo, and Paso Robles
  • Unique to the Central Coast wine region is the wide array of soil compositions that allow growers to plant vines in the climate and soil that will reliably produce the finest characteristics. The marine sediment and dense, clay-based soils all show their influence in the flavor profiles of the wine they produce

Viticulture/Winemaking:

  • The highest quality grapes were carefully selected from multiple AVAs across California
  • Sustainable farming and winemaking practices are key to us. Better grapes make better wine
  • The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks

Alcohol:  12.5%

Pairs Well With: Asian stir fry, goat cheese drizzled with honey, sweet and sour chicken
