Aromas of apricots, green tea and racy salinity on the nose followed by layers of white cherries, fennel and honey on the plush, round palate, and a long, mouthwatering finish.

Nutt Road Vineyard
Nutt Road Vineyard is located on the west side of Seneca Lake on well-drained Honeoye silt loam soil. Vineyard manager Peter Martini’s use of sustainable farming methods and his attentiveness to the vines ensure that the Riesling grapes are of exceptional quality each year. Riesling grapes grown on this vineyard possess an enticing myriad of aromatics and flavors.
The 2015 vintage began with a cold winter followed by a cool, rainy spring, a seasonal bud break and a June bloom. Summer delivered significant heat and sun, bringing the ripening back on pace with historical regional norms. September and October were warm and dry, allowing grapes to achieve optimal ripeness, while cool nights preserved acidity. Harvested fruit was whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. Fermentation lasted an average of 85 days at 53° and some batches were stopped before dryness in order to retain varietal character and vibrancy. The wine was then bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine. 70 Cases Produced
Enjoy this Riesling with pan-roasted halibut with thai green curry and rice noodles, grilled ham and gruyere crostinis, or sesame crusted chicken salad with ginger-lime dressing.
