2016 Riesling - the Knoll Lahoma Vineyards

Available:  In Stock $43.00
Size: 750 ml
Lahoma Vineyards - The Knoll:
A special two acre block of Riesling within the fifteen acres of Riesling for Red Newt at Lahoma Vineyards on the southwest side of Seneca Lake, The Knoll has been distinct from the time the vines went in. Planted with Geisenheim 239 Riesling, The Knoll is in fact a sandy knoll of land that rises over the rest of the rolling hills of Lahoma on a unique patch of Dunkirk Sandy-Loam. This soil type separates The Knoll from the other, slightly heavier, soils at Lahoma and is a relative rarity in the remainder of the Finger Lakes, but for Riesling it seems to be perfect. With both excellent air drainage due to The Knoll and the water drainage of the soil, this block typically sees little disease pressure and is picked very ripe near the end of harvest.

Intense aromas of honey, white peaches, green mangoes and limes, leading to a palate that has succulent, deeply flavorsome core of limes and grapefruit. The acidity balance is scintillatingly precise and the overall impression is seamles. Amazing fruit intensity here.
