2009 Riesling, Dry
Varietal: 100% Riesling
Production: 297 cases
Viti/Vini: 2009 was a very cool vintage in the Finger Lakes, and produced Riesling with stunning acids and amazing purity, density and focus. This wine was fermented fully dry in stainless steel, and then spent nearly 3 years on its lees to build texture and weight to balance the stunning acidity.
Tasting Note: Lime leaf, burnt mineral, toasted yeast and smoke dominate the nose, with tart fruit and defined minerality rounding the aromas. The palate is bright and vibrant, being lifted by stunning acidity. The crisp, clean finish is tart and bright, with balanced weight and lees adding to the length and complexity. This wine is developing at a monumentally slow pace, and should have an amazing future in the cellar.
