RED NEWT CELLARS DRY RIESLING
The Red Newt Riesling is our expression of a richer style of Finger Lakes Riesling. Just off-dry in balance rather than overtly higher in sugar, our Riesling plays on the same tropical and orange fruit that are echoed in the Dry Riesling. For us, this is a hidden gem in our portfolio that we hope rewards Riesling fans everywhere.
The vineyard block was walked by the winemaking team just prior to harvest to drop any undesirable fruit, usually 1% of the total, so that what was remaining could hang longer and cleaner. Lahoma Vineyards, which serves as the basis of this wine, is pristinely maintained; manicured, weeded, and hedged in the postcard tradition that grower Harlan Fulkerson takes pride in.
