TASTING NOTES

Classic aromas of grapefruit, guava, and lime zest perch alongside dried grass and herbs. Ripe peach and passion fruit round out the generous body. It's beautifully rich and substantial with cool climate acidity cutting through.


VINEYARD NOTES

The 2020 is a 50/50 blend of two vineyard sites on Seneca Lake. Sawmill Creek is located on the south eastern shores where the warmer mesoclimate provides fruit with riper characteristics. The other half comes from Anthony Road located on the north western shores of where the cooler weather provides acidity and citrus characteristics.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Hot and dry is a great way to describe the 2020 growing season. The trend of late bud break continues, beginning in mid-May. A month later in mid-June, most varieties began
flowering and fruit set. Between bud break and fruit set, it was warm and dry with only considerable rainfall a handful of times. This allowed the bunches to fertilize properly. Throughout the growing season we were blessed with hot and dry conditions. This kept disease pressure very low. Luckily, our old vines are able to withstand drought conditions. The warm and dry weather continued into the fall allowing us to fully ripen grapes well into October. The 2020 vintage was one of the best years in recent memory.
