RYAN WILLIAM VINEYARD

OUR VINEYARD


Our vineyard is purposefully planted in the heart of the Finger Lakes, in the Town of Hector, on the southeast side of Seneca Lake, the largest of the glacial Finger Lakes by volume. We grow Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Only 100% Estate Grown fruit is used in our winemaking.

With plantings extending to the Seneca Lake shoreline, and a steep, westward facing slope our vineyard is optimally situated to maximize the sunlight hours captured during the growing season and produce a micro-climate which helps mitigate the challenges of growing vinifera in upstate New York.

Bottle size

750ml

Tasting Note

Made from 100% hand harvested Pinot Noir, the 2019 Pinot Noir Rosé is dry and delicate. The grape skins were macerated with the fruit in a traditional cold soak to provide clean yet complex layered aromatics of strawberry and ripe watermelon. Expertly balanced, the wine finishes with mouthwatering notes of raspberry and blood orange.
Please call to order.

PINOT NOIR

Year

2016

Bottle size

750ml

Tasting Note

As is typical for all of our reds, the 2016 Pinot Noir was held back and aged in bottle for several years allowing the tannins to reach their optimal elegance. The wine is now picking up aromas reminiscent of Bing cherries and nutmeg that follow through on the palate with hints of ripe pomegranates, and finishes with great structure and notes of blackberry.
Please call to order.
