Pacific Rim picks their Riesling grapes early (20-21 Brix). They use only native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks – there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. They then stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar and clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. Pacific Rim leaves a fair amount of natural carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively mouth feel. 100% of the energy used at the winery is offset using wind power credits!
