Style

Shindig over-delivers as an ideal clean, zippy, fresh white with balanced fruit. There are flavors of citrus, green apple, stone fruit, lemon zest, a little slate and ginger, and a touch of sweetness mingles with refreshing minerality on the finish. With a high acidity level and tropical notes, this wine is reminiscent of a very crisp Sauvignon Blanc, or a mineral driven Gruner Veltliner. The Finger Lakes shines on this wine expressing the crisp, clean fruit and mineral notes indicative of the terroir.

 

Pairing

A lip smacking , thirst-quenching, food loving wine, Shindig is a perfect aperitif and pairs great with shellfish, sushi, salads, vegetables, fried seafood, BBQ, and any time that a great, refreshing summer sipper might be required!

 

Grape Varietals

90% Vidal Blanc / 10% Riesling (sourced from two vineyard sites)

 

Region

Finger Lakes, NY

 

Process

Shindig White was made in a simple manner to preserve its crisp freshness. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures,
the Vidal was fermented to dryness, and the Riesling stopped early to keep a bit of residual sugar for balance. The lots were then blended, and rested before bottling.
