Tasting Notes
From the producer: "We consider this a “grand cru” site because of its close proximity to the lake and rocky terroir of shale near the surface. This vineyard always expresses its terroir clearly; grapes ripen early and well, yielding distinct character and power." Savory and intense with flavors of stone and saline interplaying with apricot skin, apple and anise.
 
Grapes for this wine are grown at Leidenfrost Vineyard, located on the east side of Seneca Lake in Hector.  Hand-harvested, hand-sorted, and whole-cluster pressed, this Riesling ferments spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in neutral barrels.
 
Forge Cellars is a project between Louis Barruol of Chateau St. Cosme in the Rhone, France and his American partner, Rick Rainey.
