Forge Cellars Classic Dry Riesling Wine
Nectarine - lemon - marzipan 
“Our most important wine aims to reveal the true nature of the vintage and to explore the terroir of east Seneca Lake. Working with eight different growers on ten parcels, we see the depth of expression possible in a ripe vintage. Grapes were hand-harvested, hand-sorted and whole-cluster pressed. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts in neutral French barriques (65%) and the remaining in stainless steel. With this level of ripeness, fermentations continued into late spring in order to finish bone dry. Quince, lemon, fennel and slate mingle with marzipan and white chocolate, supported by precise acidity.” - Forge Cellars

About Forge Cellars
We are a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are made up of three like-minded and passionate friends--French Winemaker-Grower, Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and Finger Lakes partners Richard Rainey (Vineyards, General Manager) and Justin Boyette (Winemaker). 

We strive to grow grapes and handcraft wines of interest and value that perfectly balance minerality, aromatics and fruit to reflect our exceptional Finger Lakes terroir. Each vintage is viewed as an opportunity to express our region - to reflect its soils, its cool climate and its hillside lake terroirs.
