2020 Riesling ML+
Winemakers Notes: This wine is an effort to craft a full-bodied truly dry Riesling that is at once approachable and structured. Explosively aromatic out of the glass with almost Sauvignon Blanc- like character, grapefruit, gooseberry, and a slightly herbal tinge. A fascinating wine with a long life ahead of it.
• A single vineyard wine from the “GC” block of Lahoma Vineyards on the west side of Seneca Lake.
• Cold-soaked on the skins for two days before being pressed to extract additional flavor and weight from the skins before being co-inoculated with malolactic bacteria, and having the lees stirred to enhance body and mouthfeel.
• A nod to the powerful Smaragd wines from Austria, and the many-layered Rieslings of Red Newt Wine Cellars in the Finger Lakes.
