2009 Harvey Estate Riesling

The Harvey Estates Riesling is a custom wine made exclusively for Scotto’s Wine Cellar in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn – one of the longest-running wine shops in the borough. Our friends at Scotto’s asked to produce a local wine with us, and naturally, we loved the idea! We aimed to make an extremely drinkable, refreshing, and excellent food wine – and we did! It’s an off-dry style that abounds with lemons, apples, pears, peach, orange flower, and it has nice minerality and crisp structure.

We carefully blended our Riesling with grapes sourced from three vineyards on Seneca Lake; it was fermented in-tank at a cool temperatures and fermentation was stopped early to take advantage of the natural grapes sugars in balancing the wines’ acidity. A portion rested on its lees for a few weeks to enhance the wines’ aromas. Vegan. (74 cases made)
