Atwater Estate Vineyards - Riesling Bubble Sparkling Dry White Wine
Delighting in the abundant Riesling grape, our winemakers created this fun, lighthearted, semi-dry and bubbly appealing to our growing New York City market. The grapes were harvested on the same date from two different vineyards located on Seneca Lake. One on the east side, and one directly across the lake on the west side in Rock Stream. Seventy percent is Atwater's own fruit and thirty percent from LKF Vineyards.
Fermented to dryness, the wine was racked and blended with an addition of 2% sugar. Before bottling it was pad filtered, gentle carbonation was achieved with CO2 and crown cap was applied.
This lightly carbonated Riesling bubbles forth notes of apricot and pear, making an ideal aperitif or Bellini cocktail mixer.
