This relatively new grape shows aromas of fresh fruit salad, along with exotic tropical fruit notes. We recommend serving this wine lightly chilled as an aperitif.
GROWING CONDITIONS: 2015 saw a lot of see-saw weather, with the growing season starting off cool and wet. The sun emerged for good in mid-summer, giving the vines the boost they needed to fully ripen the grapes. Harvest proceeded on schedule, and we were able to produce small quantities of very tasty wine with all varieties. VINEYARD SITES: Simmons Vineyards on Bluff Point, Keuka Lake, Est. 1998, Elevation 980 ft. Vines are non-grafted, own rooted which they believe create better flavors based on their elevation and the lack of soil nutrients.
VINEYARD SOIL TYPE: Hornell Silt Loam & Manlius Shale Silt Loam
Enjoy this wine with the Fox Run Signature Club sandwich: Turkey, bacon, tomato, Maggie's microgreens, and potato aioli on a fresh-baked roll.
