Seneca Lake Vineyard

Dry Red Table Wine
Cases produced: 123
Alcohol: 12.1%
Total sulfite addition: 30 ppm
Grape: Pinot Noir
Soil: Deeper loam over shale and limestone


ELEVAGE: Hand picked grapes were foot crushed, whole cluster, and put into one-ton bins to ferment by ambient yeast. The grapes received once daily punchdowns for 8 days before being bucketed into the half-ton bladder press. Settled juice was pumped into old French oak barrels to finish fermentation which continued into June of 2018. In September the wine was racked off its lees and gravity bottled by hand without fining or filtration.

TASTING NOTE: 2016 Eminence Road - Pinot Noir - Seneca Lake Vineyard - Forest floor and sandlewood aromas. Cherry fruit and earth on the palate with gentle tannin and a silky finish.

SENECA LAKE VINEYARD: In and around Lodi, New York on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake, grower Mark Wagner maintains nearly seventy acres of vines contained in six separate plots with soils mostly composed of deeper loam over shale and limestone. Green mulching and cover crops are used to manage weeds and vines are meticulously cared for with an eye towards sustainability. These vineyards produce classic Finger Lakes wines with wonderful balance and clarity.
