Lakewood Vineyards, Vignoles 2014, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: This lemon-to-gold-colored wine made from the hybrid vignoles grape has a nose of white grape, apricot, pear and green apple.
On the attack, the citrus in the wine makes itself apparent along with high acidity that kicks in at the beginning of the taste through to the finish.
While not as aromatic as other New York Finger Lakes vinifera varieties, this off-dry white hybrid makes its mark with ripe green fruit and acid balance that is both palate cleansing and refreshing.
The medium-bodied grape varietal has legs and shows that it can produce wines of substance in the cold-climate New York Finger Lakes.
Bottle Note: Pineapple and tangerine aromas introduce the sweet flavors of grapefruit, pears and honey. Family owned and operated for over 2 decades, Lakewood Vineyards is committed to producing Finger Lakes wine of the highest quality.
