2016 Chardonnay

Yellow Apple - Lemon - Marzipan - Melon

Sourced from the east side of Seneca Lake and showing significant ripeness and flavor development through the dry September of 2016, we were afforded the opportunity to harvest these grapes based solely on their quality and character.  September 26th proved to be the day.  Hand harvested and further hand sorted in the winery, half of the fruit was sent to press as whole cluster, while the balance was de-stemmed and gently crushed.  Fermentation took place with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks (30%), third use French oak puncheons, and third use French oak barrique (70%), with lees stirring every other week through this wines 8 month maturation.

2016 Dry Rosé

Red Currant - Pomegranate - Candied Cherry - Strawberry - Grapefruit Pith - Gently Sparkling

Sourced from the Davis Vineyard from pre-1965 plantings, the fruit came into the winery very clean and required little sorting.  Crushed and immediately sent to press, the juice emerged an inky purple despite having no time on the skins.  Fermented to dryness by native yeasts in stainless steel.  Produced in the Traditional Method, the vin clair was then bottled with liquer de tirage and laid to rest until February of 2018 when it was hand disgorged and given a gentle 5g/l dosage. This unique rosé of Rougeon is the perfect summer sipper.

2016 'Rhys' Riesling

Green Apple - Nectarie - Lime - Slate

From our heart to yours...

Very clean, ripe, hand harvested fruit arrived at the winery for a hand sort before going to press.  Gentle pressing of the whole clusters yielded very pretty, aromatic juice.  After cold settling, the juice was racked off to fermentation tanks, and 2 barrels of 4th use French oak for fermentation.  Native yeasts proceeded to slowly ferment at cool temperatures for 5 months with monthly stirring of the lees.

A portion of all proceeded from this wine are proudly donated to support organizations dedicated to pediatric cardiology.
