2019 Riesling (Semi-dry)

This wine was previously labeled "Semi-dry Riesling," but is just being called "Riesling" for the 2019 vintage.  Fans of the semi-dry style will find it just as lovely as when it was called "Semi-dry."

One of the most frequent comments we get about this Riesling is “it’s really not that sweet.”  Made from higher acid fruit than the Dry Riesling, it has some natural grape sweetness for balance.  It ages beautifully, becoming honeyed and multi-layered with age.   

Tasting notes:  Aromas of apricot, peach, quince and pineapple.  Intense fruity flavors are well-balanced with crisp acidity.  Long and juicy finish.  Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.

Harvest notes: The 2019 growing season was marked by average temperatures with very few hot days.  Grapes ripened later than normal but achieved full ripeness. Rainfall was average.  Harvest occurred by hand in tries from Oct. 20-Nov. 3, 2019.

Winemaker notes: A blend of grapes: 43% Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard (Keuka Lake), 39% STV Estate Vineyard (Seneca Lake) and 18% Doyle Fournier Vineyard (Seneca Lake).  Juice from different pickings and vineyards was separated into multiple fermentations, some in neutral barrel. The gorgeous natural sweetness that balances the crisp acidity of this wine was achieved by arrested fermentation.

Pairing Suggestions: Ham, barbecue, soft cheeses, spicy Asian cuisine
