Ovum Memorista Riesling, dry, complex and subtle
Memorista is a pure reflection of Riesling on basaltic soils. Which is to say it is a salty, crunchy, high acid white wine that is framed by complex citrus aromatics. Our continued work with Riesling on volcanic soil leads us to use larger vessels such as oval casks and cement eggs to help round the otherwise razor-like acidity. After nine months of aging, the wine is less aromatic and more texturally complex. The 2018 is one of the first offerings that retains the primary aromas from fermentation while offering the complex texture of the vessel. This wine will benefit from extended aging (10 to 15 years) and will pair with any cuisine that calls for high acid white wine.
