Tasting Notes

Bright and juicy aromas of tart apple, lemon, pear and apricot. Clean, pure, and complex. The beautifully round texture of this wine showcases flavors of Golden Delicious apple, toasty lees, and lemon oil.

 

No oak is used in this wine, but rather stainless steel to express the pure, cool-climate Chardonnay fruit.

 

Mike Schnelle and Nancy Irelan purchased their 34-acre property in 2004 and built their winery from the terroir up.  This husband and wife team has since dedicated themselves to producing fine wines from a number of different cool-climate varieties, keeping meticulous vineyards from which to source their fruit.  Their winery facility is New York’s first LEED-certified winery.

 

Beyond Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, they have planted some more obscure red varieties from other cool-climate areas including Teroldego (Northern Italy), Dornfelder (Germany), and Blaufränkisch (Austria).
