We've gushed a lot about Andrew and Jennifer from Eminence Road Farm Winery over the years because they keep producing wines of quality and intrigue that don't burn the wallet. Not only that, but their wines lend credence to the overall rising quality of New York State Wines. Based in a converted cow barn in the mountain valley of Long Eddy, NY, on the western edge of the Catskills, Eminence Road is, in a way, a Finger Lakes winery. All of their wines are made from sustainably grown Finger Lakes grapes, fermented with native yeast, and bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered with the only addition being a minimal amount of sulfur for stability. The riesling for this bottling was sourced from Lamb's Quarter Vineyard, located in Lodi, on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake. The grapes were crushed, destemmed and fermented on their skins for ten days (hence Ten DOTS - "days on the skins"). The pressed juice was moved to stainless steel where fermentation, including full malolactic, continued into July of 2019. In August of 2019 the wine was racked and gravity bottled by hand without fining or filtration. The "Ten Dots" sparkling riesling displays lovely ripe lime and orange zest aromas over a distinct mineral core of shale and hints of anise. A touch of tannin lends something substantive to the wine's otherwise lithe texture. Dry and delicious, this unique orange sparkler is sure to get the party started! Sustainably grown, low-intervention, vegan.
