Tasting Notes:

He·don·ia (noun) The ability to experience extreme pleasure. A blend of orange peel, lychee, elderflower, and honey leaps out of the glass to draw you into this fortified apéritif wine. Flavors in the mouth evoke a fresh blast of orange, peach and passion fruit. Fire in the finish keeps things serious.

Awards:

Silver - 2012 New York Wine & Food Classic

Vineyard Notes:

GROWING CONDITIONS: The 2016 growing season was the driest in recorded history in the Finger Lakes. The abundant sunshine made for some very happy vines, even if they were a bit parched. Judicious applications of water helped things enormously, but the real breakthrough happened in mid-August, when the skies finally opened up enough to give our grapes the water they needed to let them ripen the crop fully.

Winemaker Notes:

The idea of Hedonia started in early 2011 when Peter Bell was experimenting with Traminette wine. Traminette is a hybrid grape from its parent Gewurztraminer. It is very aromatic and is commonly added to wines when blending. Peter conducted an experiment and fermented a small batch dry and then fortified it to see what would happen. The result made an immediate impression on everyone who tasted it, and Hedonia was born. We recommend this unique fortified wine as an aperitif rather than the usual dessert wine. We believe it's more appropriate before a meal. Our favorite way of serving Hedonia is to make sure the wine is very chilled and poured over a large ice cube and an added zest of orange peel.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy it straight from the fridge, or on the rocks with a twist of orange. Add a dash to your favorite sparkling wine for a taste experience that will dazzle your guests.
