2016 Bellwether A&D Vineyard Riesling Finger Lakes, 750ml

Availability: In stock (3)

A bottling from single vineyard on Keuka Lake in New York's Finger Lakes. This Riesling is fermented to full dryness for a sharp, linear version of  this noble variety. No sulfur added at crushing, only a small amount at bottling, and fined with vegan-friendly bentonite. As desrcibed by the winemaker it has notes of "Kaffir lime, green apple, wet slate and gun flint."

From the mouth of the importer (Vom Boden):

"In a relatively short amount of time, Kris has proven himself to be one of the Finger Lake’s (FLX) most talented and thoughtful winemakers. It’s my sense he’s considering his wines, thinking about his wines, in a different way than just about anyone else in this place. He talks about texture more than residual sugar (or the lack thereof); he talks about depth and definition more than alcohol; he talks about acidity and mineral more than fruit."
