Two New Releases from
Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery
Located near the coastal town of San Simeon, the Riboli family’s estate vineyards are focused within the renowned Paso Robles appellation. Steep hillsides and ideal soils produce grapes with concentrated flavors and aromas. The Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache thrive in the unique climate of Paso Robles with warm days and cool nights.
During 2018, the weather was ideal with a long growing season that provided great “hang time” for the grapes. Winemakers Anthony Riboli and Arnaud Debons employ traditional techniques in their careful crafting of these fine wines. Both the San Simeon Sauvignon Blanc and the Grenache Rosé were fermented in stainless steel tanks at 55°F for several weeks. This long, cold fermentation preserves the delicate flavors and aromas of these varieties.
2018 San Simeon Sauvignon Blanc was recently awarded 93 points by Tastings.com. It is a bright, refreshing wine with intense flavors of citrus and pear. The nose reveals bright aromas of white peach and lime zest. Mineral notes express the rocky terroir of the vineyard. This structured and well-balanced wine shows a lengthy finish. Enjoy with grilled swordfish and basil pesto linguine.
The San Simeon 2018 Grenache Rosé is grown specifically to be made into Rosé and is handcrafted in small lots. Grenache grapes are harvested and gently crushed. The skins and juice remain in contact for several hours resulting in a lovely salmon-pink color. Ripe red berry, cantaloupe and rose petal notes pair well with tuna tartare, prosciutto and melon, and a wide array of appetizers.
“Our passion for winemaking and providing people with the best hospitality and service has been our mission for over 100 years,” said fourth generation winemaker Anthony Riboli, “and we hope to continue to create memories for years to come.”
