Winemaker Notes

On 10/15/2008 we received a total of 9.1 tons of machine-picked Cayuga white grapes with a harvest chemistry of 20.2 Brix, 9.3 g/L TA, and 3.02 pH. Fermentation continued at approximately 60-65 F for 51 days, at which point the wine was cooled to 44 F to stop fermentation at 2.8% residual sugar. The wine was racked off the gross lees, then cold-stabilized by leaving the wine in outside tanks for 6 weeks. Blending trials showed that the wine was improved by the addition of 7% of the wine produced from our settled, fermented Gewürztraminer lees. The blend was filtered through 2.5 micron pads with no further cold-stabilization or heat stabilization required.

Food Pairing

The style of Summer White matches well with Thai, Chinese and Mexican dishes.
