SKU: 2018-DRY-RIESLING

This vintage of Dry Riesling has a bright golden straw color and is quite aromatic. It has intense peach and citrus zest aromatics with a distinct floral character as well. This wine is fruit driven on the palate and the aromatics blend with grapefruit, nectarine and lemon oil leading to a crisp, zesty finish.

Notably, this vintage has less slate/mineral/wet stone character than the 2017 vintage. Pair with lobster, seared scallops with a citrus reduction, smoked meats and fish, and summertime BLTs. Drink now through 2028.


Seven tons of estate grown grapes were harvested by hand on October 12, 2018. These grapes had 18.8 brix natural sugar, 8.5 g/l TA and 2.94 pH. The grapes were destemmed, pressed and inoculated with yeast. A cool fermentation lasted for 21 days at 59-60 degrees. The wine was aged in stainless steel and then cold and heat stabilized. It was filtered and bottled on May 30, 2019. The finished wine has 7.3 g/l TA, 3.04 pH, 0.75% residual sugar and 12% alcohol. 266 cases were produced.

We enjoyed this wine today while visiting the winery and sitting on the deck overlooking Keuka Lake. It’s deliciously dry with fruity overtones that pair well with mildly spiced foods. A wonderful summer wine! We will be purchasing more!
