This Riesling Ice Wine from Uva Blanca vineyard has a beautiful honey golden hue. A desert wine with lifted, effusive nose of pear puree, honey, orange blossom, and yellow plum. Finely balanced mouthfeel is bright and fresh, velvety. Stone fruit flavor guides that mouthfeel with gentle hints of citrus candy.

Vineyard Description:
This 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:
Grape picked early October and freeze in cold storage. The crop has been pressed frozen with our basket press, this technique is called “cryo-extraction” (mimicking the “ice wine” method) follow by cold temperature fermentation (3 months) in an oak barrel, no malolactic fermentation. 140g/L residual sugar.
