Dry Riesling 2015
This wine offers aromas of Tahitian lime and honeydew melon which is synchronized with a bright and fruitful essence.
The Finger Lakes Region is known for its high quality Rieslings, and our Knapp Dry Riesling is a stellar example of our AVA. This wine offers aromas of Tahitian lime and honeydew melon which is synchronized with a bright and fruitful essence. The texture reminds us of a juicy grapefruit and orange combination. It has a long and lingering finish which is sustained with a hint of minerality. This Knapp Dry Riesling will be a mouthwatering accompaniment to Thai curry dishes, sweet and sour sauces, or spicy and savory Mexican dishes as well as a beautiful welcome wine for any gathering.

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.
