2016 Sekt Bottle
Red Tail Ridge Winery

2016 Sekt

Traditional method.
This Riesling hosts bold aromas of orange blossom and lime zest accentuated with hints of lemongrass. Its fine bubbles are elevated by a focused acidity and a lean crisp body. A plucky front palate bursts with Granny Smith apple and key lime integrated with structural undertones of minerality. Lean and precise. First 48 case disgorgement. 4 g/L dosage.
*Estate fruit sourced from Red Tail Ridge Vineyard

About the Winery

Red Tail Ridge Winery

Community. Sustainability. Creativity.

James Beard Semi-Finalist in 2019 & 2020

We make small batches of handmade wine; we are minimal interventionists, preferring to do all the work upfront in the vineyard, during the growing season.

With a climate similar to the cool climate regions in Europe, the Fingers Lakes is the perfect place to experiment. We have embraced our terroir and are focusing our efforts on wines that speak to our specific climate and soils. It was important to Michael and I to set us up for the long-term, which is why we became a LEED-gold certified green winery—currently the only one in New York State.

This community and environment is everything I could have hoped for when considering where to experiment, grow and give back.
