Bottle of 2013 Riesling from Magdalena VIneyard

Riesling Magdalena Vineyard 2018

The unique traits of our Magdalena Vineyard are featured in this lush Riesling. A beneficial air exchange with Seneca Lake moderates the temperatures, creating a warmer and more protective site in the colder months and a cooling effect throughout the summer.  The airflow keeps the vineyard dry, and deep soil provides room for spreading root growth. The lime silt loam soil that the site is celebrated for is crucial to the development of flavor intensity in the grapes. The resulting ripeness greets you in the nose with an intense, floral bouquet. This gives way to a fruit-driven, mouth-coating freshness that lingers for minutes after the first sip. Magdalena wines are striking and powerful, and develop very well over time– whether in the glass or in the cellar.
