Riesling Davis Farms Vineyard 2009

Finger Lakes, New York, USA

100% riesling

This Riesling is off-dry and complex with aromas of peach and quince in the nose, and flavors of apricot and tangerine on the palate. The palate is smooth, focused and voluptuous, leading to crisp, dry and ethereal finish. This wine has captured the quintessential personality of Finger Lakes Riesling.The Davis family has be farming grapes in Hector, NY for generations. This Riesling comes from their vineyard on the east side of Seneca Lake, less than one mile from Red Newt Cellars. Exemplary attention in the vineyard yields fruit that is opulent, but focused. 2009 was an exceptional vintage for Riesling in the Finger Lakes, and marks the first year of Red Newt single vineyard bottlings of Riesling. Fruit from the Davis Farms Vineyard shows great extraction and structure that comes with small crops and meticulous canopy management that keeps fruit exposed to the sun and flavors concentrated.
