2015 Riesling

Hints of marzipan, nutmeg and baked apple on the nose, followed by rich notes of peach cobbler, pineapple and mango on the palate. 
Hints of marzipan, nutmeg and baked apple on the nose, followed by rich notes of peach cobbler, pineapple and mango on the palate. The finish is rich, yet balanced with refreshing hints of citrus fruit.
This wine is made from grapes grown on the following vineyards in New York's Finger Lakes AVA: 67% - Seneca East Vineyard - Seneca Lake (East side) 33% - Nutt Road Vineyard - Seneca Lake (West side)
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. The Riesling was harvested over the course of five days in October after each vineyard achieved optimal ripeness. Harvested fruit from each vineyard was separately whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. Fermentation lasted an average of 58 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. 193 Cases Produced
