Winemaker Notes

A ripe apricot and peach nose starts off this rich, fruity dessert wine and continues through to the finish. Slight hazelnut overtones mix with tropical pineapple and grapefruit to create a truly unique taste. The finish lingers, but also lifts, leaving only the fruit flavors with a hint of sweetness. The normal reaction to tasting this wine is "Wow!"

Wine Enthusiast
Intensely aromatic with notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle and candied orange peel, this balances ripe tropical fruit and creamy butterscotch flavors with a shower of lemonade acidity. Made using grapes that were frozen post-harvest.

Standing Stone Vineyards, Other U.S.
In 1991, owners, Tom and Marti Macinski purchased historic vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. A long line of venerable vintners spent years researching the quality of these lands. The Maniskis followed in their footsteps by growing wines in the same historic vineyards that served Gold Seal Vineyards so well in the past. History became their best teacher, for conditions on the rolling hillsides above Seneca Lake proved ideal for growing and harvesting premium grapes and subsequently crafting heavenly wines. In just a few short years, the couple's boutique winery began to make history with a prized selection of award-winning wines. Tom and Marti's wines continue to reap honors and critical acclaim on the wine circuit, but we've only just begun to show our potential. They plan to move into the history of the future, with the great vineyards of the world, bringing much deserved recognition to the new world-class wines of the Finger Lakes.

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.

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
