2017 Paul's Legacy Riesling

This dry riesling is a limited production wine crafted solely from grapes grown on the higher altitude shores of Skaneateles lake.  Beautiful hints of pear blossoms on the nose, clementine zest on the round palate,  followed by a brisk, refreshing finish.  Only 58 cases were produced.  (92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate)
Aromas of honey and pear blossoms tempt the senses. Hints of Granny Smith apples and clementine zest emerge on the palate followed by a soft, delicate finish.
Hobbit Hollow Farm
This wine is a tribute to the late Paul Wellington, former vineyard manager at Hobbit Hollow Farm. In 1998, he planted the vineyard, and in subsequent years he nurtured the vines on the high elevation shores of Skaneateles Lake. Riesling can only evolve into a beautiful wine with proper care and devotion in the vineyard and Paul was the perfect steward for this grape. While 2012 was Paul’s final vintage, his gentle spirit and peerless commitment continue to speak through the wines.
Harvested fruit was whole cluster basket pressed and chilled. Fermentation lasted an average of 49 days at 51° and some batches were stopped before dryness in order to retain varietal character and vibrancy. The wine was bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine.
Enjoy with grilled shrimp skewers with sweet chili sauce, smoky chipotle chicken chili with cornbread, or a wood-fired pizza topped with gorgonzola, walnuts and prosciutto.
