The Harvest Begins...


 

First up this year, Cayuga White 

Origin: A hybrid of Seyval Blanc X Schuyler, it was developed at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York starting in the 1950’s.


New York Introduction: Released for commercial planting in 1972.

Atwater Introduction: 1982

Acreage: Atwater Estate Vineyard: 1.0 acres / Total New York: 266 acres

Viticultural Characteristics: Vigorous, moderately hardy vine with good disease resistance, Cayuga produces high yields of large, well-filled clusters.

How we use it: Cayuga can be vinified successfully from dry to sweet. This is a wonderful blending wine and we use it primarily in our Stone Bridge White.

We're off to the Hudson Valley Wine Festival Sept. 6-7

Hudson Valley Wine and Food Festival, Rhinebeck, NY opens its gates this September 6 and 7 anticipating record attendees and participants eager to taste, test and learn about award winning wines, state-of-the-art distilleries and New York State’s growing and trendy food producers. Wineries, distilleries, craft breweries and food artisans from all over New York State will present their wares while everyone from gourmands and oeneophiles to farmers and visitors will enjoy wine tasting and food sampling as well as the demonstrations by well-known chefs. The celebratory atmosphere is enhanced by live music and the anticipation surrounding the judging of the Hudson Valley Wine & Spirits Competition.

Founded 13 years ago by Hudson Valley-based Wineracks.com, the Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest is held in the Dutchess County Fairgrounds Rhinebeck, New York, a beautiful historic town and area only two hours from New York City by car or train on Metro North and Amtrak. The Hudson Valley Wine and Food Fest is designated as a “New York Farm Market,” which allows the participants to hold tastings and sell by the bottle which is an unusual opportunity for visitors to buy directly from the vintners themselves.

Limited Release Library Wines

Limited release library wines are available now,  
we have less than two cases of each.  Call us to order 
800-331-7323.    Taste tested and priced accordingly, 
no discounts may be applied due to the very limited 
supply.

Quotes taken from our tasting notes upon the wine's release, the following still holds true today for these twelve year old wines.

2002 Estate Selection Chardonnay   $19
"Barrel fermented and aged in French oak for over a year, this wine is reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts, lemon and apples. Enjoy with shellfish, chicken and cheeses."

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon   $30   SOLD OUT

"Our second vintage, this wine exhibits notes of black currant, herbs, and cedar. Savor with hearty roasts and rich cheeses."

2002 Pinot Noir  $20
"This lovely wine displays notes of cherry, spice, and herbs.  Superb when served with game and grilled seafood." 

The 2002 growing season was long and seasonably warm, which was excellent for fruit of the Finger Lakes Region, allowing the grapes to ripen until the very last minute before harvest.  For a nostalgic look back on the 2002 Harvest, here is an article written by Peggy Haine for Life In The Finger Lakes.
