Located in the heart of New York?s Finger Lakes region on the western shore of Seneca Lake, Red Tail Ridge Winery is owned and operated by husband and wife Mike Schnelle and Nancy Irelan. As a former executive in charge of viticulture and oenology R&D at a large winery, Nancy strongly believes in sustainability. Not only is the 35 acre vineyard farmed in a sustainable manner it is also the first LEED gold-certified winery in New York. Everything at Red Tail Ridge reflects Nancy and Mike?s attention to detail ? the winery that they built from scratch to their limited production, premium single varietal wines.
Bosc pear, lemongrass and lime juice on the nose. Whiffs of guava and white floral follow. Limestone, white peaches and crisp pears on the palate; followed by orange blossom and hints of pineapple. Mouth-filling acidity cuts through the mid-palate with lingering minerality notes, lemon peel and nectarines to finish.
