We've gushed a lot about Andrew and Jennifer from Eminence Road Farm Winery over the years because they keep producing wines of quality and intrigue that don't burn the wallet. Not only do their wines consistently lend credence to the overall rising quality of New York wines, as winemakers they continually try new things. 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. The grapes for this riesling come from the Folts Farm, a vineyard on the western shore of Keuka Lake managed by fifth-generation grapegrower Adam Folts. After being destemmed, the hand-picked grapes macerated for three days on the skins before fermentation in stainless steel. The skin contact, along with the full malolactic fermentation the wine underwent, give it a unique golden color and subtle texture on the palate. Light in body, and fully dry, this delightful riesling recalls the rolling hills and orchards of the Finger Lakes where it comes from: red apple and apple blossom on the nose, citrus on the palate before a spiced apple finish. Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
