2017 Finger Lakes Riesling Traminette

Floral and complex Riesling [62%] with citrus notes and zesty acidity, blended with Traminette [38%] for added perfume and spice. The ferment was stopping prior to finishing for an off-dry style, complementing the natural characteristics of these varieties.

The Riesling for this blend comes from two vineyards situated in the ‘Banana Belt’ on the east side of Seneca Lake, one of the warmest areas on the Finger Lakes. Traminette is a lesser known variety, a French-American hybrid with characters of floral and spice likened to one of its parents, Gewürztraminer, but with more superior cold hardiness. The Traminette for this blend came from two vineyards on Keuka Lake, where it thrives in the slightly cooler conditions. The batches were all kept separate throughout ferment and blended together prior to bottling.
