Product Description:

"Production: 108 cases

"Viti/Vini: Year 2012 was outstanding in the Finger Lakes. A near perfect summer followed by a warm, balanced autumn produced healthy, clean fruit, giving growers and winemakers the ability to allow the fruit to hang. This produced grapes of exceptional ripeness for the Finger Lakes. Our 2012 Riesling is no exception. Full ripeness without botrytis led to a wine with a more opulent, ripe nose, and great weight and structure. This wine was fermented using only natural yeasts, in stainless steel. Then we halted fermenting. There is a noticeable amount of residual sugar to balance the acids.

"Tasting Note: Aromatic, ripe red apples, stone fruit and baked pineapple aromas meld with ripe white flowers and a slight herbaceous note. The palate is round and full, with a large impression of fruit, balanced but crisp acid and a bit of grip from slow basket pressing, allowing a small amount of natural skin contact. This wine has a long future ahead of it." - Winery
