2016 Nutt Road Riesling

Limited production wine crafted from grapes grown on the sustainably farmed Nutt Road Vineyard on Seneca Lake.  Hints of bright, fresh green apples and minerality on the nose, key limes and peaches on the palate, and a brisk, dry finish.

Hints of bright, fresh green apples and minerality on the nose, followed by a round, full palate which bursts with flavors of key limes and peaches. The brisk, dry finish invigorates the palate.
Nutt Road Vineyard
Nutt Road Vineyard is located on the West side of Seneca Lake. The vineyard is managed by Peter Martini, who leads the Finger Lakes Sustainable Viticulture Initiative. Peter strives to bring out the best of the vineyard, and is constantly innovating and devising new ways to enhance fruit quality. Riesling grapes grown on this vineyard possess an enticing myriad of aromatics and flavors.
The vintage began with a mild winter, followed by a late April bud break and early June bloom. Spring and summer were exceptionally hot and dry. Some well-timed rain in September allowed grapes to reach full maturity. The vintage yielded fruit with incredible flavor intensity and produced Rieslings with expressive vibrancy and harmonious balance. Harvested fruit was whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. Fermentation lasted 82 days at 53° and some batches were stopped before dryness in order to retain varietal character and vibrancy.
Enjoy with fresh heirloom tomato salad with buratta, sliced peaches and nasturtium pesto, or spicy buttermilk fried chicken with crispy brussels sprouts.
