2010 Riesling, Dry

Varietal: 100% Riesling

Production: 307 cases

Viti/Vini: Year 2010 was a near perfect classic vintage in the Finger Lakes. A wonderful summer and moderate fall gave clean, ripe, and elegant fruit. Full ripeness without botrytis gave us wines with much softer acids than 2009 and great weight and structure. This wine was fermented using only natural yeasts, in stainless steel, and fermented completely dry.

Tasting Note: Baked golden apple, and waxy, honied, oily notes dominate the nose and support a rocky mineral character. The palate is soft, textured and warming, with an impression of fruit sweetness. The wine is completely dry, but the softer acids of the vintage produced wines that are more round and weighty. Delicious, soft and balanced, the finish is deceptive in its concentration.
