Standing Stone Vineyards Gewürztraminer Finger Lakes Ice 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Gewurztraminer was the first new vineyard planted by Marti and Tom Macinski at Standing Stone Vineyards. The first vines were planted in 1994 and included 4 different clones of Gewurztraminer. The vineyard site is on a steep hillside with thin soils and lots of slate. The combination of soil, slate and sun exposure contribute to an exceptional Gewurztraminer. - Winery

Family owned farm winery, producing Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Vidal Ice, and several bordeaux style red wines. Overlooking historic vineyards, with a delightful tasting room experience. In 1991, we purchased historic vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. A long line of venerable vintners spent years researching the quality of these lands. We followed in their footsteps by growing wines in the same historic vineyards that served Gold Seal Vineyards so well in the past. History became our best teacher, for conditions on the rolling hillsides above Seneca Lake proved ideal for growing and harvesting premium grapes and subsequently crafting heavenly wines. In just a few short years, our boutique winery began to make history with a prized selection of award-winning wines. Our wines continue to reap honors and critical acclaim on the wine circuit, but we've only just begun to show our potential. We plan to move into the history of the future, with the great vineyards of the world, bringing much deserved recognition to the new world-class wines of the Finger Lakes. From ripe, richly flavored grapes we produce premium wines - each year making slightly more wine which is better than the preceding vintage. Our first crush, in 1993, yielded only 800 cases, which was quickly discovered and sold out in just 12 short weeks. We now produce about 6500 cases, allowing us to bring wine to you in more locations. We always encourage you to visit the winery, drink in the view, and enjoy the current vintage. Tour our 30 plus acres of vineyards, expanding to 40 acres over the next few years. Learn how we carefully nurture the fruit of the vine through the fall and winter, and into summer, in a way that allows the best features of that fruit to show through in the finished wine. The wines are made and sold in renovated barns. The white wines are made in stainless steel tanks, allowing temperature control of fermentation and cellaring, and the red wines and Chardonnay are made in oak barrels - primarily American Oak. We spend many hours tasting the wines, both to follow their progress, and to assess the blends. We believe that the hands-on, vineyard based approach to our wines results in a superior wine finished in the bottle. You can tour our facility, often including a visit with someone from the winemaking team, and often including samples of the current vintage from barrels or tanks. Read less

Interesting, with dark mulled plum and linzer torte notes laced with dark, sweet tobacco and toast. Offers a nice, fleshy feel. Saperavi. Drink now.

Crushed granite notes lend a distinct minerality to ripe black cherry and plum flavors in this wine made from the Georgian (the republic, not the state) Saperavi grape. It’s dry in style with a delicate frame marked by gentle tannins and soft acidity.
