Tasting Notes
This rose gold wine lifts out of the glass with aromas of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, dried apricots, and raw almonds. Flavors of meyer lemon and orchard fruit are framed by bright acidity and grippy tannins, which linger through the long finish.
Vineyard Notes
After a mild winter with little snowfall and an uneventful spring, the word of the year in the Finger Lakes was drought. Classified as being under ‘extreme drought’ according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, June and July recorded 1 inch of rain or less in both months. Although the hot, dry summer put some stress on vineyards, we enjoyed excellent yields and relatively low disease pressure resulting in a very clean crop. These conditions also accelerated the ripening process. Overall, it was a ripe year with clean fruit, high sugars and low acids. We are expecting excellent reds with good concentration and ripe tannins. Our vineyards had excellent yields with normal berry size.

Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with local mushroom pâté with pickled ramps, Salmon crudo with avocado, mango, cucumber + chives, or seeded nut crisps with blue cheese + ginger-apricot jam.
Other Notes
Skin-contact wines are white wines made like red wines. They ferment with the grape skins, which give wine its color, hence the term "orange wine."
