ELEVAGE: Crushed grapes were given a 3 day maceration before being pressed. Settled and browned juice was pumped into a single stainless steel tank to ferment via ambient yeast. Fermentation continued into July 2018, including full malolactic fermentation. In September the wine was racked off its lees and gravity bottled by hand without fining or filtration.

TASTING NOTE: Amber-rose color, nose of ripe papaya and orange zest and slate. Full body palate with tropical fruit flavors and a rich, saline, glycerin finish.

SENECA LAKE VINEYARD: Located in Ovid, New York on the western shore of Cayuga Lake and is composed of Howard gravelly loam derived from shale, limestone and slate. The vineyard's gentle, well drained slope towards the lake and east facing exposure combine to create a perfect site for cool climate viticulture. This vineyard produces wine of great finesse with bright, mineral studded acidity
