Sheldrake Point Late Harvest Riesling 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

2013 Late Harvest Riesling is a 100% Estate Riesling (Finger Lakes AVA) produced from our vineyard on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. On January 22, 2.8 tons of botrytised, very cold Riesling grapes were hand harvested and pressed for 9 days (34 Brix, 9.2 g/L Ta, 3.02pH). Fermentation continued for 22 days at ~65 degrees F and was stopped by chilling at 9.2% alcohol and 18.4% residual sugar.

Tasting Notes:

Pale lemon in color with green highlights. The pronounced bouquet exudes a complex spice apple brulée with honey and citrus notes. A sip fills the mouth, rich and sumptuous with spicy apple, pear and mandarin flavors and natural fruit sweetness is continually balanced and refreshed by the vintage’s hallmark acidity.
