Done in the German-style of using botrytized grapes, this late harvest Riesling is pale gold in color, with a slight haze. Lemon-peach marmalade aromas linger under a layer of furniture polish. The palate is luscious, with peach-pinapple chutney flavors that lead to a candied-ginger finish.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
