2015 Riesling - Tango Oaks

Available:  In Stock $28.00
Size: 750 ml
2015 will primarily be remembered for what preceded the growing season, an unbelievably brutal winter featuring the coldest month ever recorded in the Finger Lakes. As a result, yields were significantly down in a growing season that held much promise. Heavier than average rains in June required careful attention in the vineyard to manage botrytis and mildew, but the remainder of the growing season until the harvest rain events was dry and even in temperature. Two heavy rain events spaced ten days apart put an end to a remarkably warm and sunny September. Fruit was harvested in very good condition, but due to the rain it was not worth the risk of leaving it out any further.

Tango Oaks is a vineyard that, despite its gorgeous view of Seneca Lake, tends to look quite austere as vegetation has a difficult time surviving between vines. Vines tended with an early harvest for Sekt, and leaf pulling to reduce crop yield and increase sun exposure through the concluding month of harvest, both of which seem to be key to maximize ripening of the late ripening Alsatian clones of Riesling.

...aromas of apple and Meyer lemon meld with a delicate oolong tone on the nose of this dry Riesling. There's a rounded pithy feel to the palate, where flavors of lemon, apple and apricot are wrapped in a mild grip of white tea and tannins... Alexander Peartree, Wine Enthusiast 92 points
