Winemaker Notes

An aromatic nose with slate, mineral and peach stone. Floral, mineral and tree fruit on the palate. Very attractive Finger Lakes Dry Riesling that is drinking well now and can cellar for 3-5 years. Riesling is the flagship variety of the Finger Lakes and produced in this dry and elegant style refreshing, intriguing and satisfying. Crisp, dry and aromatic, this wine shows classic Finger Lakes style. Flavors of orange peel, apricot and lemon curd fill the palate, while aromas reminiscent of pink grapefruit, key lime and ripe pineapple are present in the nose. This wine is an expression of the perfect climate for growing Riesling. Enjoy it today or for years to come as is ages elegantly in the bottle.

Wine Enthusiast
A graceful wine, this plays the line between savory and fruity, the biscuity, leesy scent gathering into an uplifting pineapple brightness. The flavors move into the realm of stone fruits, with a vibrant acidity that links savory and sweet. That vibrancy and persistence is the wine’s most thrilling feature. Serve it with a brined pork chop.

Increasingly garnering widespread and well-deserved attention, New York ranks third in wine production in the United States (after California and Washington). Divided into six AVAs—the Finger Lakes, Lake Erie, Hudson River, Long Island, Champlain Valley of New York and the Niagara Escarpment, which crosses over into Michigan as well as Ontario, Canada—the state experiences varied climates, but in general summers are warm and humid while winters are very cold and can carry the risk of frost well into the growing season.

The Finger Lakes region has long been responsible for some of the country’s finest Riesling, and is gaining traction with elegant, light-bodied Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Experimentation with cold-hardy European varieties is common, and recent years have seen the successful planting of grapes like Grüner Veltliner and Saperavi (from the Eastern European country of Georgia). Long Island, on the other hand, has a more maritime climate influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, and shares some viticultural characteristics with Bordeaux. Accordingly, the best wines here are made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Niagara Escarpment is responsible for excellent ice wines, usually made from the hybrid variety, Vidal.
