2022 Semi-dry Riesling

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 honeysuckle, peach, quince and pineapple.  Intense fruity flavors are well-balanced with crisp acidity.  Long and juicy finish with flinty mineral aftertaste.  Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.

Winemaker notes:  Semi-dry Riesling is a strategic blend of grapes from our own vineyard and our trusted grower-partners: our 40-year-old, biologically-farmed vineyard perched on the edge of Seneca Lake, neighboring Doyle Fournier Vineyard (Seneca Lake) and Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard (Keuka 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
