With an ability to blend the experimental with the classic, Ian Barry is injecting real energy into the Finger Lakes wine region. Founded in 2011 by father and son, Ken and Ian, Barry Family Cellars specializes in small-batch vinifera wines, but are not afraid to experiment with many hybrid varietals that are grown organically in the Finger Lakes. Located in the village of Burdett on the east side of Seneca Lake, they work with local growers, often showcasing individual vineyards and always creating wines that are reflective of place and vintage. Father Ken contributes in by doing label illustrations for their wines. With winemaking experience in the Hudson Valley, Oregon, and Washington State, Ian eventually landed in the Finger Lakes in 2003, bringing his family into his first personal project. This dry, sparkling riesling come from a vineyard on Skaneatles Lake and is a true pétillant naturel; the wine finishes fermentation in the bottle and has a gentle mousse. Spicy, floral, lees-y aromas introduce an addictively refreshing palate, awash with bright apricot and citrus flavors, and delicate hints of stone and spice on the energetic, sparkling finish. A party in a bottle for sure! Low-intervention, vegan.
