Riesling HJW Vineyard

2017

The HJW Vineyard is where it all began. On a bench of land seven hundred feet above Seneca Lake, Hermann planted the estate’s first Riesling vines in 1977. We spotlight this block each vintage in the limited release Riesling HJW Vineyard. The site’s cooler mesoclimate shows through with racy acidity underpinned by a dense mineral backbone. (2017 Vintage Robert Parker- 92, W&S- 90 points, WE- 94 points)
