Nadi is an homage to Scot Bilbro’s partner Lisa, who he says “creates as naturally and ceaselessly as she breathes, brightening all around her.” Her path from Germany to India, Africa, and California is strewn with beauty. This Dry Riesling comes from a special vineyard in the Cienega Valley appellation inland of Monterey, California. These old, dry farmed, head pruned vines produce a small but concentrated crop. The second oldest Riesling in California, this block was planted in 1964. This wine shows white peach and apricot on the nose with an oyster shell minerality and waxy honeycomb aromas to provide depth and complexity. Long and mouth coating richness gives way to a tingly, lemon tart sensation before finally leaving the palate clean and fresh. It is bone dry yet generous, with exceptional clarity and verve befitting its namesake.
