Agness Wine Cellars Finger Lakes Semi-Dry Riesling 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

The cold fermentation under precise temperature conditions, and three separate additions of early, mid and late harvest grapes with exacting amounts of yeast nutrition allowed healthy yeast and lees to direct the fermentation process to create the most favorable aroma and taste characteristics. Several essential steps including recirculation, or pump over provided necessary amounts of oxygen for the yeast to thrive, Racking and cold crashing before fermentation reached dry set the all natural residual sugar from the grapes. No additions or adjustments were necessary from tank to filtering and into the bottle – simply perfectly balanced finish.

Four and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

The nose prominently exhibits an aroma of white flowers, ripe apricot and peach, soft melon, then revealing slight crispness and a hint of sweetness. Typical Finger Lakes Rieslings develop further with ageing in bottle, and creating the mineral notes, citrus texture and enjoyable lingering.

The cold fermentation under precise temperature conditions, and three separate additions of early, mid and late harvest grapes with exacting amounts of yeast nutrition allowed healthy yeast and lees to direct the fermentation process to create the most favorable aroma and taste characteristics. Several essential steps including recirculation, or pump over provided necessary amounts of oxygen for the yeast to thrive, Racking and cold crashing before fermentation reached dry set the all natural residual sugar from the grapes. No additions or adjustments were necessary from tank to filtering and into the bottle – simply perfectly balanced finish.
