2020 Acidalia - Elizabeth's Vineyard

Dry Red Table Wine
99 cases produced
Grape: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot
Alcohol: 11.0%
Total sulfite: 35 ppm
- Whole cluster/foot crushed, 100% stem inclusion
- Neutral French oak barrels - 11 months
- Unfined and unfiltered

TASTING NOTE: Floral, fruity, weedy, a hint of cocoa powder, tiny red and blue berries, light in the mouth with ample acid and tannin. Finish is clean, dry and bright with a wash of tannin.

ELEVAGE: Hand picked grapes were foot crushed and put whole cluster into one ton bins to ferment with once daily punchdowns. After seventeen days the grapes were pressed and settled juice was moved to neutral French oak barrels to complete fermentation which continued into June of 2021. In August of 2021 the wine was racked out of barrel and bottled by hand without fining or filtration.

VINEYARD: Located in Hector, New York on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, this west facing vineyard is composed of shallow silt loam soil over shale on a slope leading to some of the lake's deepest waters. Farmed by second generation grower John Leidenfrost and his daughter, Elizabeth, the vineyard's privileged exposure and thin, shale laden soil produce wines of great depth and backbone.
