Peconic Bay Winery Riesling North Fork 2008
External Reviews for Peconic Bay Winery Riesling North Fork
The 2009 growing season was more challenging than most. Heavy rainfall throughout most of June yielded a poor fruit set and required more attention to detail in the vineyard. This wine represents an aromatic departure for the kind of fruit we're used to producing from this vineyard. It resembles the floral Rieslings produced on granitic soils in Alsace. Normally, the resultant wines from our vineyards are reminiscent of those grown on limestone soils in that they are focused and imbued with mineral and citrus aromas. This grape is truly a chameleon in the way it mimics its' terroir.
