EMPIRE ESTATE DRY RIESLING
FINGER LAKES, NEW YORK 2015

Empire Estate was created to showcase an incredible winemaking region that we New Yorkers have right in our own backyard: The Finger Lakes. We crafted this wine to express the dry style of this dynamic grape - Riesling doesn't always have to be sweet! We hope you enjoy yet another one of the  many reasons why we love New York.

TASTING NOTES

A shimmering silver-yellow color, on the nose this Riesling brings aromas of shale, crushed stone & minerals, as well as fruit tones of ripe apricot, golden apple and baked lemon. An intense burst of acidity hits the palate, carrying along with it flavors of ginger, lemon and lime zest, and golden peach that carry into a long, mineral-laced finish.

Made predominately from one vineyard site, this Reserve blend is a response to a wine that rose to the top in the cellar and had seemed special from the moment the grapes were picked.
