This Riesling hosts bold aromas of orange blossom and lime zest accentuated with hints of lemongrass. Its fine bubbles are elevated by a focused acidity and a lean crisp body. A plucky front palette bursts with Granny Smith apple and key lime integrated with structural undertones of minerality. Lean and precise. First 48 case disgorgement. 4 g/L dosage. This, by the way, spent over 4 years on the lees, far longer than most Champagnes twice or more its price.

The Finger Lakes of Upstate New York has established itself as an ideal site in North America to produce exceptional cool-climate wines such as Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Over the years, it has also become a place where experimentation is prolific. Nancy Irelan and Mike Schnelle are all about experimenting. Together they bring years of industry and other expertise to this modern and focused project. Presently they are the only LEED-Gold Certified Green winery in New York.
