Tasting Notes

The wine is pale lemon in color with a nose of mineral, green apple and lime notes with a hint of peach. In the mouth it is dry, lean, fresh and medium in weight showing mineral, citrus and apple flavors that last through the satisfying finish. Overall, a lovely Riesling with the hallmark backbone of Finger Lakes acidity that assures cellaring.

Winemaker Notes

On October 21, 2007 9 tons of grapes were harvested (19.1 Brix, 7.0 g/L Ta, 3.02 pH), crushed, destemmed, pressed in a single lot then settled for five days. The juice was racked, chaptalized to 22 Brix and inoculated with Epernay II yeast. Fermented lasted 41 days at ~60F and was stopped with chilling at ~0.6% residual sugar.

Food Pairing

Herb-roasted chicken and the cuisine of Alsace call out for this excellent Dry Riesling.
