Winemaker's Notes:

A crisp unoaked Chardonnay built with aromas of fresh peaches and grapefruit. An appealing balance between lean ripe stone fruite and citrus blossom develops on the palate. Fresh, risp and lingering finish

Riesling-obsessed connoisseurs know how important Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard's pioneering work is to wine. Hermann, born in Germany with an extensive wine family background, discovered the Finger Lakes in the 1960's, and its cool climate and gravelly soil reminded him of the Mosel Valley. Realizing the untapped potential of the Finger Lakes region, he started to grow classic European vines along selected sites on one of the most prominent properties in the Finger Lakes. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard estate grown wines are established from traditions of excellence and have a reputation for being exceptionally lush, crisp and well balanced. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard is founded on the philosophy of quality and hand crafted wines. Located on the shores of Seneca Lake, the well drained sloping shalestone bedrock and Honeoye silt loam soil lend itself to the production of what critics consider to be some of the best grown Rieslings in America.

Herman Wiemer's unique ability to combine the tradition and skills of the old world with the vigor and modern techniques of the new has quickly established its reputation as a leader in producing high quality wines which are recognized throughout the world. Barrel fermented in French oak, the aromas and flavors reveal a dry, full-bodied complexity that is well structured with excellent acid and fruit balance.

If your palate is begging for a rest from super-heavy, super-oaky California Chardonnays, give this one a try. Crafted in New York in the classic French style - restrained, with great tropical fruit notes and crisp acidity, tempered by subtle toasted nut flavors on the long, buttery finish. Close your eyes and you'll swear this is a $30 Pouilly-Fuissé!

A crisp unoaked chardonnay built with aromas of fresh peaches and grapefruit. An appealing balance between lean ripe stonefruit and citrus blossom develops on the palate. Fresh crisp and lingering finish.

This sparkler’s fresh mousse lifts sour candy and baked-biscuit lees notes. The flavors are rich and mouthfilling with a firm texture, and the mildly herbal finish suggests pairing with herbed farro salad.

Bone dry with aromas of freshly pressed apples, this is an austere but elegant sparkling blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With notes of delicate white florals and yeast in the backdrop, the palate has a savory, dusty quality accented by a racy acidity and strong, minerally finish.
