Perfect Stranger

With aromas of candied green apple and juicy pear, our off-dry Cayuga has a bright and refreshing finish. Easy sipping, this wine is one of our most popular every season.

 

YEAR: 2015

BLEND: 100% Cayuga

SOURCE:
Finger Lakes, NY

ABV: 11.6%

WINEMAKER NOTES: Although the 2015 vintage began cooler than usual in the Finger Lakes, late summer and fall were warmer than average which produced a healthy ripe crop with typical Finger Lakes freshness. Our Cayuga White came in with perfect chemistry for this light, off-dry style wine. For this vintage, we continued to work with a yeast strain developed at the Australian Wine Research Institute that is a strong aroma producer by enhancing fermentation esters and volatile thiols. We are very happy with the results and it feels like this yeast was designed specifically for the Cayuga White grape. We fermented and aged this wine in stainless steel with as little oxygen exposure as possible to retain its beautiful aromas. As a final touch, we retained a small amount of perceptible CO2 from the primary fermentation for a nice, slight spritz upon opening.
