The Riesling vines were first planted at Barrow Vineyard in 2013, when the Bloomers purchased the hillside site on the east side of Seneca Lake. The grapes were hand-harvested, crushed, and fermented on skins for approximately 21 days. The skins were pressed off and the wine sat on lees for one year in stainless steel before bottling, unfined/unfiltered.

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes are very rarely blended with others in the development of wines, and for good reason. These pale grapes which originated in the cool Rhine Valley of Germany are notable for their 'transparency' of flavor, which allows the characteristics of their terroir to shine through in wonderful ways. The result of this is a wine which carries a wide range of interesting flavors quite unlike those found in other white wines, finished off with the distinctively floral perfume Riesling supplies so well. Many wineries in Germany and elsewhere tend to harvest their Riesling grapes very late – often as late as January – in order to make the most of their natural sweetness. Other methods, such as encouraging the noble rot fungus, help the Riesling grape varietal present some truly unique and exciting flavors in the glass, and the variety of wines this varietal can produce mean it is one of the finest and most interesting available anywhere.

Region: New York

Whilst not as well known as certain other United States wine regions, the wines of New York state have plenty to offer, and are packed full of unique characteristics which are gaining popularity on both sides of the Atlantic. New York state enjoys a fine climate for the growing of certain Old World grape varietals – notably those from Germany and central France - and boasts a fine array of excellent hybrid grapes ideal for the cooler, damper weather the state receives. New York state also has a wine heritage which stretches back several hundred years, and certain regions within the area can be traced back to the original Dutch settlers from the 17th century. This mixture of history and innovation still effects the wine production which characterizes the region today, where you'll find traditional wine-making techniques sitting comfortably alongside modern technologies and palates.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
