Vineyard

100% Riesling, 100% Finger Lakes terroir selection. Planted in 2002 and sourced from a vineyard site that is predominantly composed of clay soil (selected for richness and fruit). In 2015, the grapes hung on the vines 11 days longer than for the Riesling dry style.

Vinification

Owners/Winemaking Team: Celine & Sebastien LeSeurre
The Riesling juice is all fermented in stainless tanks. While on its lees the wine is hand stirred (bâtonnage sur lies) once per month, for 10 months. This process develops an additional complexity of flavors and aromas. No sulfur addition before fermentation (preoxydation of the juice). Fermentation is done at cool temperatures (41-57°F), and this cold temperature helps the yeast to ferment the sugar slowly (fermentation finished in June 2016). This helps the yeast to produce fine aromas with some fine lees The wine keeps a good carbon dioxide level because of the long fermentation so the first addition of sulfite happens at the end of fermentation.
