William's California Wine Concentrates are made from 100% Central Valley varietal wine grapes, picked at their peak and gently concentrated with minimum heat under vacuum to 68 Brix. Sugar has not been added, nor is sugar needed to make 5 gallons of full-bodied varietal wine.

The 192 ounces of concentrate included in each pack is enough to make 5 gallons of wine with an alcohol content of 12 to 13%. Contains sulfiltes, so you do not need to add them before fermentation. Our California Wine Concentrates are also acid balanced, so you do not need to add acid or do an acid titration test (unless you want to).

Riesling is a grape that has adapted well to California, and tends to produce a floral, fruity white wine. Like Chardonnay, adding a little oak to this one during the ferment can provide a welcome hint of oak.

Note: This includes concentrate only, and does not include yeast, oak, or other additives that may be needed to ferment 5 gallons of wine. For complete wine kits, see our William's California Wine Kits.

The Riesling turned out tasty and cleared fast. I am looking forward to the flavors that are brought out in the coming months. It’s already quite smooth at only a month.

Produces wonderful pear/apple aromas with the right yeasts!

Review by Holger M. on 1/28/2021

This is a really excellent product - at least for the year I purchased it (2021). With the right care (low temps; correct nutrient add'ns) and the right yeast (in my case I made two ~5.5 gal batches using D47 for one and 58W3 for the other) you can get some great flavors out of this concentrate. I did choose to increase the TA with the addition of some tartaric acid but I am sure you could skip that and still have a nice crisp white wine. This is high quality concentrate.

very good

Review by @carlbrews on 1/23/2018

I agree with the previous reviews. although i just bottled at about 5 months old, this is a really nice wine. finished bone dry, not too much fruit - and agree on the earthy and spicy flavors. i'm thinking this will age out real nice.

Beyond 5 stars

Review by Alex Gandy on 6/14/2012

We made this late in 2011. Absolutely beautiful Riesling. Tropical fruit nose and a apricot, mango, pineapple taste with a soft spicey overtone. This wine is still young but so far one of the best California Rieslings I have tasted. High quality juice.

Excellent Riesling

Review by B.Miller on 8/25/2008

Pros: Excellent "earthy" flavor with notes of apricot and a slight spice. The aroma is very floral with hints of tropical fruit. Nice straw color. I would compare it to a $20-30 bottle of California Riesling.

Cons: None

Q: I recently ordered a Riesling kit and made a wonderful wine. My question is what type of Riesling was it. is Grey Riesling, Johannesburg Riesling, or some other type?

A: Our Riesling is not grey or Johannesburg, it is just plain Riesling, from Woodbridge in California.
