Barry Family Cellars "Jewels & Binoculars" Dry Riesling (NV)
Vineyards: several vineyards on the west side of Seneca Lake, grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides
Making of: blend of several different vintages fermented spontaneously in different vessels (75% stainless steel tanks) that sat on the gros lees for an extended period of time (various depending on the vintage). About 20% of the blend was on the lees for over two years. Small amount of sulfur added at crush, bottled unfined and unfiltered with no added sulfur.
Personality: light and easy-drinking, but with a unique depth of flavor. Compelling balance of savory and fruit notes and pleasant acidity.
