Tasting Notes
Green Apple, Orange Blossom, Elegant

Wine Profile

The wine opens with delicate nose, full of ripe green apples and orange blossoms, woven with hints of lime/lemon and apricot.  On the palate, the wine is very mellow, with good weight and a certain elegance.  The experience is capped off by a super clean, mineral finish.  This wine is approachable and food friendly.

About The Vineyard

This vineyard owes more than just its signature views to Seneca Lake, as the vines come from Hermann Wiemer, one of the area's most prominent Riesling producers. With plantings extending to the shore, the moderating effects of the 600-foot deep lake create a macro-climate similar to Alsace.  Pinot Blanc is a mutation of Pinot Noir that grows yellow grapes instead of purple.

Winemaking Process

6 week fermentation at cold temperature in stainless steel tank follow by aging on fine lees with regular battonage to ensure a rich mouthfeel.

Recommended Pairings

This wine is just begging for cheese.  It would pair nicely with a rich, creamy mac and cheese.  If you’re feeling adventurous, try this wine with apple slices covered in baked brie and honey.  This wine would also be at home with a blackened chicken caesar salad or some sriracha-lime shrimp skewers.


"Very mellow, with good weight and elegance."

How City Winery Makes Wine

Step 1
Grapes
We contract carefully selected vineyards to supply grapes. Prior to harvest we choose our preferred varietals and make shipping arrangements.
Step 2
Crush and Maceration
Grapes are inspected upon arrival and if approved, de stemmed, sorted, and finally crushed.
Step 3
Aging
After fermentation the wine is barreled into the cellar to begin aging per the winemakers design. Typical aging is 6-10 months but options exist for aging up to 24 months.
Step 4
Blending
After the wine has aged to its optimal condition, our winemakers further refine the wine by blending it with other wines if desired.
Step 6
Labeling
The finished wine is hand bottled, corked, and labeled.
Step 6
The Result
A carefully crafted wine made with grapes from the best vineyards and produced locally. Indulge.
