2015 Late Pick Riesling

Exotic aromas of green figs and honeycomb on the palate, followed by salted caramel and dried apricot on the palate, and decadent butterscotch on the lingering finish. 
Aromas of ripe green figs, honeycomb, and butterscotch on the nose, followed by salted caramel, dried apricot, and tropical fruit on the palate. The decadent butterscotch persists on the long, complex finish.
This wine is made from grapes grown at Hobbit Hollow Farm on Skaneateles Lake in the Finger Lakes AVA. The fruit was picked in late October 2015, over 2 weeks after all of our other 2015 Rieslings were harvested. The extra hang time on the vines allowed for the flavors to become more deeply concentrated and rich.
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 hand-harvested on a single day in late October. Harvested fruit was whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. Fermentation lasted an average of 102 days at 52° in stainless steel tanks, 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. 133 Cases Produced
