Tasting Notes
Citrus. Toasted Bread. White Flowers.

Wine Profile

This Riesling was made using the traditional Kosher winemaking process from grape picking to bottling. The aging on the lees gives the wine a mix flavor of citrus and toasted bread with delicate white flower notes. The palate is evolving from the first impression of savory note to a citrus mid-palate and finally to finish with a smooth honey feeling. 

Vineyard Description:

Uvas Blancas vineyard owes more than just its signature views to Seneca Lake, as the rootstock comes 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 that generates superb Riesling grapes in this cool-climate AVA.

Winemaking Info:

Traditional Kosher winemaking from the grapes picking to the bottling.
This riesling had a cool temperature control fermentation for 45 days in a stainless tank and aged for 6 months on lees before racking and filtration.

"Finish with a smooth honey feeling."

How City Winery Makes Wine

Step 1
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
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
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
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.
