2019 Le Petit Riesling

Our 2019 ‘Le Petit’ Riesling is our wine for all occasions. A youthful wine with aromas of fresh cut grapefruit and mandarin. On the palate, bright flavors of white peach and lime are persistent and intense. Drink now but can age for up to 5 years.

2020 20 Rows Dry Riesling

The 20 Rows vineyard is our largest estate site at just over four acres. The vineyard was planted in 2004 on the site of an old Aurora vineyard. It is situated at a lower altitude than our westside Riesling plots. This warmer microclimate affords the wine a more tropical driven flavor profile. Made of mostly clay sediment with dense glacial till, the soils are moderately well-drained as they slope downwards toward the lake. It has a gentle slope with good airflow.

At harvest, our 100% estate-grown Riesling is handpicked, de-stemmed and gently pressed. We ferment in stainless steel at very low temperatures for 10-12 weeks. Aged on fine lees for 10 months and naturally cold stabilized. Vegan friendly.

Crackles with white peach, jicama, mustard flower and acacia notes. Very distinctive. The nice dry, racy finish extends nicely, too.

2020 Dry Riesling

There are seven mature estate Riesling vineyards at KLV – Goldman, Evergreen Lek, Falling Man, Ernesto Lucie, 20 Rows, Upper & Lower Eastside. Every spring, the winemaking team blind tastes all of the Riesling lots to determine which vineyards will be bottled under their own label. Once the team determines the vineyard bottlings, trials on the remaining vineyard lots are assembled and tasted to determine the final blends for our Dry and Semi-Dry Rieslings. At harvest, our 100% estate-grown Riesling is handpicked, de-stemmed and gently pressed.

We ferment in stainless steel at very low temperatures for 10-12 weeks. Aged on fine lees for 10 months and naturally cold stabilized. Vegan friendly. Bracing, with slate, thistle, pippin apple and lime pith notes that extend through the bone dry finish.

2020 Falling Man Dry Riesling

Falling Man vineyard is just over one acre of Riesling planted in 2001 on the western slope of Keuka lake. This vineyard gets its name from its extreme slope and tortuous climb back up the hill. Resting on excessively well-drained soils made up of outwash glacial material, the vineyard has varying and irregular topography, which can be seen very clearly when driving a tractor on the 30% slope.

At harvest, our 100% estate-grown Riesling is handpicked, and gently whole cluster pressed. We ferment in stainless steel at very low temperatures for 10-12 weeks. Aged on fine lees for 10 months and naturally cold stabilized. Vegan friendly.

Very tightly focused, with racy slate, pippin apple, fennel seed and acacia notes. The long, pure finish glistens nicely.

2019 Semi Dry Riesling

This wine is a blend of many different Riesling vineyards from two fo the Finger Lakes. Most of the fruit is purchased from nearby growers, 37% from J&C Vineyards and 34% from Martini Vineyards. The remaining fruit is from our estate vineyards, with 13% Upper Eastside, 12% Evergreen Lek, and 4% Falling Man.  This food-friendly wine is balanced medium dry to offset its natural acidity.

2017 Riesling, 20 Rows

A lovely fruit-forward flavor balanced with some minerality characteristic of Finger Lakes’ Rieslings. This wine pairs beautifully with a range of foods or can be enjoyed in a glass on a summer afternoon.

 

Hand harvested. The 20 Rows Vineyard is our largest estate site, at just over four acres, and is located on the east side of Keuka Lake. It was planted in 2004 to our usual 5’ spacing between vines and 9’ between rows, with an additional 9 rows added in 2010. Made of mostly clay sediment with dense glacial till, the soils are moderately well-drained as they slope downwards toward the lake. It has a gentle slope with good airflow.
