Kemmeter Wines, Riesling 2014, Sheldrake Point Vineyard, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: Kemmeter’s indigenous-yeast fermented riesling delights.
Citrusy pear and honey dew melon feature on the nose of this lemon-colored dry riesling.
The aromas on the nose carry through to the palate with the addition of green apple and white grape.
This medium-plus acidity wine is smooth and slightly tart on the finish.
There is a depth of flavor in this riesling that pleases and shows complexity the more you allow it to interact with air in your glass.
Bottle Note: Kemmeter Wines is collaborating with Sheldrake Point Vineyard (Cayuga Lake), Red Tail Ridge Estate Vineyard (Seneca Lake) and White Pine Vineyard (Ontario Lake) in an exciting venture to explore the joys and challenges of growing Riesling at three different lakes in Upstate New York. The grapes which made their way into this bottle of wine were grown at Sheldrake Point Vineyard. Look our for the two other wines from this project and enjoy with us one of the most versatile white grape varieties in the world – RIESLING! – Johannes Reinhardt
