Tasting Notes:

Using these new world techniques highlights the fruit flavors of Riesling. Look for pronounced citrus and other tree fruit flavors of lemon, mango, and apple. There’s a fascinating connection in this wine between its aromas and its flavors in the mouth. A pas de deux between sweetness and acidity marks this as a truly outstanding Finger Lakes Riesling.

Vineyard Notes:

GROWING CONDITIONS: 2012 was an ideal year in the Finger Lakes for all varieties. An early start to the growing season advanced vine growth by several weeks, and the hot and dry midsummer conditions allowed for excellent sugar accumulation in the grapes. Moderate rainfall late in the summer helped with the final stages of ripening. VINEYARD SITE: Fox Run Vineyards – Lake Dana Vineyard VINEYARD INFORMATION: Fox Run Vineyards Blocks 4, 10, & 11 Plantings established in 1989 in fertile, well-drained soil with sandy loam over lakeshore stones at an elevation of 660 ft.

Production Notes:

Fruit was hand-picked and whole cluster pressed. The fermentation was started with Epernay II yeast and was carefully managed using current New World winemaking techniques to ensure healthy and steady kinetics. Fermentation lasted for five weeks and was arrested when the alcohol was low and sweetness high, in order to produce a classic traditional style of Riesling.
