Juicy, dry, low-ABV natty sparkly. Stunning at brunch.
Region: Seneca Lake
Grape variety: Cayuga White
Vineyard age: 30+ years
Soil: Howard gravelly loam
Farming practices: sustainable
Vinification: The grapes were harvested early in the season for maximum acid retention. Grapes were pressed gently in a horizontal press. The juice was fermented naturally with a pied de cuvée that was started in the vineyard to ensure that true vineyard yeasts drove the fermentation. Wine was bottled on October 1 to finish ferment under crown cap and to preserve natural carbonation. No sulfites were added at bottling.
Alcohol : 9.3%
Acidity : TA: 8.1 g/l, PH: 2.96
Tasting notes : Pale yellow color with a light mousse and fine bubbles. There are fresh peach and apple aromas. Flavors are bright and fruity with a hint of creamy yeast character. Perfectly refreshing and an expression of sparkling that could only come from the Finger Lakes.
