2015 Riesling -the Knoll- Lahoma Vineyards

Available:  In Stock $39.00
Library Release
Size: 750 ml
The "Knoll" is a pristine vineyard on a well drained knoll above the rest of Lahoma Vineyards. In a moderate boytritis harvest, this was the latest pick and cleanest fruit that came to Red Newt Cellars. A riper more tropical expression of Riesling, the palate is weighty with a core of stone fruit and minerality packed into this lush wine.

James Suckling - 95 points

Freshly poured the nose of grapefruit and smoke is rather like that of Red Newt's regular dry riesling of this vintage. Yet then the passion fruit, pineapple, mangoes and lemon balm come through making it so much more complex. This extremely concentrated wine manages to be as powerful as it is finely nuanced from the surge of ripe fruit at the front to the diamond-bright finish that seems to vibrate on your tongue. Not yet released. Should be at its youthful best 2018-20, but this can age way longer than that.

Lahoma Vineyards - The Knoll:

A special two acre block of Riesling within the fifteen acres of Riesling for Red Newt at Lahoma Vineyards on the southwest side of Seneca Lake, The Knoll has been distinct from the time the vines went in. Planted with Geisenheim 239 Riesling, The Knoll is in fact a sandy knoll of land that rises over the rest of the rolling hills of Lahoma on a unique patch of Dunkirk Sandy-Loam. This soil type separates The Knoll from the other, slightly heavier, soils at Lahoma and is a relative rarity in the remainder of the Finger Lakes, but for Riesling it seems to be perfect. With both excellent air drainage due to The Knoll and the water drainage of the soil, this block typically sees little disease pressure and is picked very ripe near the end of harvest.
