Sheldrake Point Reserve Riesling Finger Lakes 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit that came in on November 9, 2009 was whole-cluster pressed in a single lot. After pressing, the juice obtained from pressing was settled 1 day to later be racked, warmed, inoculated with Epernay 2 yeast. The wine fermented for 29 days at ~60F and was stopped with chilling at ~0.6% residual sugar. Technical adjustments included addition of SO2 and filtration. The wine was bottled on July 29, 2010 with a final chemistry of 12.7% alcohol, 0.6% residual sugar, a pH of 2.72, and a TA of 10 g/L.

The wine is pale lemon in color with a nose of mineral, green apple and lime notes with a hint of peach. In the mouth it is dry, lean, fresh and medium in weight showing mineral, citrus and apple flavors that last through the satisfying finish. Overall, a lovely Riesling with the hallmark backbone of Finger Lakes acidity that assures cellaring. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
