A crisp and elegant medium-bodied Riesling with floral aromatics and a distinct minerality.

Variety: 100% Riesling
Vineyard: Argetsinger Vineyard
Location: Finger Lakes, NY
Alcohol: 12.9%

With floral aromatics, citrus fruit a distinct minerality, and racy acidity, this wine finishes delightfully dry. Crisp and elegant and will age gracefully. On the palate, it shows an unusual richness, medium body, and a lingering smooth finish.

Hand harvested and whole cluster pressed. After cold settling, the juice was fermented at a low temperature to retain full aromatic intensity. All components were fermented dry, racked with light lees and blended. The fine lees were stirred regularly to give the wine additional texture. Prior to bottling, the Riesling was fined with isinglass.

All of the Riesling grapes for this single vineyard wine come from the Argetsinger Vineyard on the east side of the Seneca Lake in the town of Hector. This vineyard is an exceptionally steep and well-drained site where the 198 Riesling clone was field grafted onto old existing vines, making it one of the oldest Riesling vineyards in all of the Finger Lakes. It is a low-vigor site with soils of Howard Gravel over limestone bedrock.
