One of our favorite New York producers, Eminence Road Farm Winery marches to the beat of its own drummer. Based in a converted cow barn in the mountain valley of Long Eddy, NY, on the western edge of the Catskills, Eminence Road is, in a way, a Finger Lakes winery. All of their wines are made from sustainably grown Finger Lakes grapes, fermented with native yeast, and bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a minimal amount of sulfur for stability. This chardonnay comes from the Lamb's Quarters Vineyard on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake in Lodi, NY. It underwent full malolactic fermentation and spent 22 months on the lees, giving it a briny, savory texture that more readily evokes a Muscadet than a California chardonnay. Light and bright, with mineral-driven green and gold apple, ripe pear, a hint of honey, and a squeeze of citrus, this is clean and refreshing. Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
