Tethys , the titan goddess, is a frozen moon of Saturn and a dessert style Riesling. This wine was gently pressed from frozen grapes and fermented in stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of dried apricot, bruised pear, kumquat, smoke, fig, dried flowers and potpourri are on the nose. Like a vibrant, snappy Sauternes without the botrytis or noble rot. It is clean, unctuous, viscous and rich but also light and elegant with racy acid. A fatty piece of foie gras on toasted brioche and some ginger jam or a slap of marmalade would do nicely. Vanilla ice cream with caramel would also be heavenly.
