Forge Cellars Classique Dry Riesling 2016
Forge Cellars is a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Dry Riesling and Pinot Noir from Seneca Lake. Classique bottlings aim to reveal the true nature of each vintage and to explore the terroir of east Seneca Lake. Their wine is made in the traditional, handcrafted manner, employing spontaneous fermentation in very tiny lots. Very low levels of Sulphur are used, and Rieslings are always fermented bone dry.
- 100% Riesling
- Sustainable farming
- Soils: shale, gravelly loam and clay with limestone
- Hand harvested with natural yeast fermentation
Tasting Notes: Complex aromas of baked apples, bosc pear, quince paste, ginger and briche. Bone dry on the palate with austere acidity and pops of fresh citrus and tree fruit followed by elegant petrol minerality.
