TASTING NOTES

Succulently sweet with cranberry, fresh strawberry, pineapple, and green apple. Light and refreshing with mouthwatering acidity which allows the flavors linger on the palate for a long finish.


VINEYARD NOTES

Grapes for Salmon Run wines come from local Finger Lakes growers and from younger Dr. Konstantin Frank estate vines.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Budbreak and flowering were a bit late, beginning in June. July recorded some of the hottest and driest days in the Finger Lakes, perfect conditions for ripening. Several weeks of rain in September forced us to be very selective in the vineyard. Several tries through the vineyard dropping poor fruit before harvesting only the best quality bunches. Harvest finished earlier than normal.

WINEMAKING

Immediately after harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and pressed independently. The juice is fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the more delicate flavors. Fermentation is stopped early to retain sweetness in the finished wine. The wine is aged in stainless steel until the following Spring, blended, and bottled without oak aging.
