Ovum Toro Y Scorpio Riesling 2016
Blueberry, petrichor, banana leaf. A dusting of RS is apparent upon entry, quickly washed over with layered acid and an obscure saltiness that we're coming to expect. 10-20 year aging potential.
* The Toro and Scorpio icon is a vinous representation of the two winemakers - Ksenija being a Scorpion, John being the Bull. Defining the line of equality during the wine making process, we believe these signs are an honest reflection of the tension that makes an Ovum wine.

Tucked into a 420 foot plot of marine sedimentary soil is a small block of Riesling in the Ribbon Ridge AVA. This area is known for having more Willakenzie soil than elsewhere, which imbues Pinot Noir with darker fruit, and more structured tannin. Conversely, in Riesling this marine based soil creates layers of red fruit laced with a flinty, mineral filigree.
