Bloomer Creek Vineyard 'Dry Riesling Barrow' 2018
Producer: Bloomer Creek Vineyard
Country: United States
Region: New York (Finger Lakes)
Notes: On Seneca Lake's eastern shore, in 2013, Bloomer Creek purchased a vineyard that had been abandoned for over 30 years. This high rocky hillside was planted to eight acres of vines; Riesling, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The new vineyard was named "Barrow" – Old Norse for “high rocky hill and burial mound.” Our new label for this bottling features the artwork of artist//vigneronne Debra Bermingham.
Vinified with extended skin contact and spontaneously fermented in stainless steel, this 2018 Barrow Riesling showcases fresh-cut stone fruits, apricot, and lemon with a classically styled linear minerality. Unfined and unfiltered, with minimal S02 only at bottling.
