Forge Cellars Riesling les Allies 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

About the Wine Hand-picked and resorted in the winery Whole cluster pressed, very long and gentle...settled overnight Fermented and aged in neutral barriques When the vintage allows it we make a selection in the spring of certain barrels that we feel will benefit with longer aging. In 2013 we had two vineyards that comprised Les Alli&eacutes, Sawmill Creek and Harvest Ridge. Sawmill Creek is on the "slope" and is mostly grey shale and contributed great power and length. Harvest Ridge is on more limestone/clay vineyards and shows the wet-stone and round mouth feel we come to expect. The combination of these two sites and with nearly a full year in barrel show an expression of Riesling from the Lakes that is unique and exciting...RICK RAINEY, Budding wine grower and resident of Trumansburg, NY and partner in the trio behind Forge Cellars.
