2019 Salmon Run Chardonnay Riesling
Vintage : 2019
Country : USA
Region : Finger Lakes, NY
51% Chardonnay, 49% Riesling.
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. The wine is aged in stainless steel until the
following Spring, blended, and bottled without oak aging.
This wine combines the refreshing rich texture of Chardonnay with the lightbodied crisp acidity of Riesling. Together, they form a wine expressing white
flowers, honeydew melon, orange citrus, and lychee.
