Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Lemberger is one of those grapes that just loves the Finger Lakes.  And we love it back!  No matter what you call it Lemberger (aka Blaufränkisch) is a perfect medium bodied red to pair with most meats and slightly spicy dishes.  Our Lembergers always present the most jewel-like magenta in the goblet; bright, beautiful, and eye-catching.  The aroma is quite heady, an enchanting mix of blueberry pie, açai, clotted cream, and pipe tobacco.  On the palate violets, brambleberries, white pepper, and poached plums dance a jig and linger, leaving you thinking about the next glass.

Vintage Notes

Winter of 2021 gave us some surprisingly warm days and just enough snow to be protective when the temperatures dipped low.  Early spring was lovely - sunny and mostly dry with undisturbed flowering and fruit set.  Beginning in June, the summer rains arrived and persisted through August.  Once into September and more so in October, we were blessed with warm and dry weather, allowing us to round out our harvest season in good conditions.  The abundant moisture during the summer months resulted in a smaller crop but yielded very fruit-driven and expressive reds and sparkling and bright and refreshing whites and rosés.
