2016 Dry Riesling Classique


Our most important wine aims to reveal the true nature of the vintage and to explore the terroir of lower east Seneca Lake. Working with eight different growers on ten parcels, we are still within a tight microclimate where there is harmony of flavors. Our 2016 reveals baked apples, bosc pear, quince paste, ginger and brioche.
