This vintage of Riesling was received at the winery coming in at 22 Brix and was fermented down to approximately 12 g/L of residual sugar. The yeast used for the fermentation was Vin 13 a yeast that releases lots of aromatic compounds called Thiols. All organic nutrient supplementation was used to craft a clean wine free of synthetically derived components. The grapes were grown at the meticulously maintained Sunrise Hill Vineyard on the western side of Cayuga Lake. The fermentation was temperature controlled and took approximately two and half weeks to preserve the tropical aromas or “fermentation bouquet”.  The wine exhibits intense aromas of Peach, Apricot, jasmine, and honeysuckle. With lush tropical fruit on the pallet structured with balanced acidity -- taste of summer in a glass

Production Notes Our Riesling grapes were sourced and blended from the southeast and west sides of Seneca Lake. There was skin contact overnight. The grapes were pressed, settled and fermented at 60°F using Epernay II yeast. It took three weeks until we reached the desired sugar level and we then racked the wine twice. We left a bit of contact with clean lees to give a fuller mouthfeel.
Food Pairing Notes Seafood, chicken or spicy Asian dishes

I love this riesling! I keep on trying to find a different riesling that I like in the stores closer to me, but have to wait until I make a trip up to Ithaca or order a case online. I'm no wine expert so I can't describe all the flavors except to say it leaves me feeling refreshed, never cloying or overly sweet.

This reminds me of a wine I had at a wine fest in Germany - excellent. I love dry wine and hard to find one that doesn't make me cry out for water. Great job! I'm no expert but know what I like and this is good.
