This truly dry Riesling is an outstanding dinner wine, with slate, minerality, citrus, and just a whisper of tree fruit.

Our Caywood East vineyard is situated just south of the winery on a steeply sloped gravel site overlooking the mid-section of Seneca Lake. For more than 90 years, this site has produced exceptional grapes. The site was replanted entirely to Riesling on a new Scott-Henry trellis system in 2005.
Caywood East is comprised of 3 Riesling clones: #90, #110, and #239. The clones were separately harvested & fermented in stainless prior to blending. Final blend ratio: 90% clone #90, 5% each of #110 and #239.
IRF ratio 0.55; dry
A superb and versatile food wine. Its slightly round mouth feel makes it a perfect match for fin fish, seafood, chicken, pork and mild cheeses.
Try in place of champagne at your next brunch!
