Bloomer Creek Vineyard 'Edelzwicker Blue Cap' 2020
Producer: Bloomer Creek Vineyard
Country: United States
Region: New York (Finger Lakes)
Varietal: Cayuga White, Riesling, Gewurztraminer
Notes: Following in the tradition of the Alsace, the Edelzwicker wines are blends of: Riesling; Gewurztraminer; the Finger Lakes own grape – Cayuga White; and other white varietals. These wines, like the 100 vinifera wines, are made in small batches and minimally processed. Use of the fairly neutral, disease resistant, and heavy yielding variety Cayuga White, allows them to bottle an affordable wine. With careful blending they can create a delightfully crisp and complex wine. Age of Vines: 15-20 years old Yields: Riesling and Gewurztraminer are cropped at 3-4 tons/acre. Cayuga White is cropped from 6-8 tons/acre.
