Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard

Riesling 'HJW Vyd'

Riesling, 'HJW Vyd', Hermann J. Wiemer

Planted in 1976, the HJW Vineyard features Hermann’s original plantings on Seneca Lake. Mature vines combined with the site’s shallow topsoil and shale bedrock produce lower yields resulting in expressively vibrant flavors. Higher elevation and a greater distance from Seneca Lake contribute to a cooler growing season, resulting in a leaner, more austere wine with intense flavor and an excellent aging potential. This wine finishes with a 0.8% RS and 12.3% ABV. Only 185 cases produced.
