Anthony Road Vignoles Seneca Lake 2010

Member Review by LENNDEVOURS:

Light gold in the glass, the nose is suprisingly complex with apple, pineapple, honey and flowers. I sense light residual sugar here to go with ripe melon, citrus and pineapple flavors. There is plenty of acidity to balance the sugar and fruit flavor, making this a refreshing pour, even if the finish is a little short.

Ann grew up in Rochester, New York and the New York City suburbs of New Jersey; John grew up in the same New Jersey suburbs. After working in teaching (Ann) and Peace Corps and business (John), they moved to Yates County in 1973 to grow grapes and raise their family on 100 acres overlooking Seneca Lake. Ann managed the vineyard and raised the children, while John worked for Cornell University at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. The grapes from their vineyards were first sold to the Taylor Wine Company and eventually to wineries across New York State. In 1990, Ann and John Martini opened Anthony Road Wine Company with wines made from the 1989 crop. The first building was a renovated farm shop and the equipment was at best an eclectic collection of used and borrowed tanks and pumps and an old apple press. Their children, Peter, Sarah, Maeve and Elizabeth, have been involved in the vineyard and winery throughout their growing years and beyond. Peter and Elizabeth are now full-time employees of Anthony Road Wine Company. The joy of growing grapes and producing fine wines still motivates and excites the Martini family…more than a quarter-century after the first vines took root. Read less

Ripe fruit flavors (apricot, peach and pineapple)offer a soft texture and a lenghty finish.

Ripe fruit flavors (apricot, peach & pineapple)offer a soft texture & a lengthy finish. Enjoy well-chilled.

Anthony Road Winery, which released its first wines in 1990, is on the west side of Seneca Lake. Owned by Ann and John Martini, the wines are made by German-born Johannes Reinhardt. Reinhardt grew up in a family that has been in the wine business since 1438, so he's been in vineyards and wineries just about all his life. With his German background, it is no surprise that he ended up in the Finger Lakes, where the best varieties of Germany, particularly Riesling, thrive.This wine, however, is a first for me – a non-dessert wine made from the Vignoles grape. Vignoles, also known as Ravat, is a white hybrid variety that is most often found in dessert wines because of its high sugar content...coupled with high acidity. Because it grows in small, tight clusters, it is also very prone to botrytis or noble rot.Light gold in the glass, the nose is surprisingly complex with apple, pineapple, honey and flowers. I sense light residual sugar here to go with ripe melon, citrus and pineapple flavors. There is plenty of acidity to balance the sugar and fruit flavor, making this a refreshing pour, even if the finish is a little short. Unique and charming, this is a wine I think a lot of wine drinkers would find very interesting.This wine is made in extremely small quantities and is only available in the winery’s tasting room.
