Winemakers Notes: The 2021 Semi-Dry Riesling is a blend of Riesling lots from all over our estate farm. The fruit was machine-harvested between 10/11/21-10/25/21. The juice lots were settled and racked, shortly after which they were inoculated with yeast strains Epernay II, Steinberger, and RHST. Separate juice lots are fermented at 56-61° Fahrenheit for an average of five weeks. Fermentations were stopped between 18-39 g/L of residual sugar to retain natural sweetness. The wine was left on the gross lees for 5 months until it was racked. It was filtered and then bottled.

Vineyard Notes: The oldest Riesling vines on the farm date to 1980. They are planted on high lime Cazenovia loam soils. All the Riesling is trained on V.S.P. (vertical shoot positioning), this allows for optimum sun and air exposure.

Hosmer Winery

Ovid, New York

Hosmer Winery is home to Patrician Verona Vineyard established in 1972, comprised of the nearly 70 acres of grapes that provide Hosmer Winery with the fruit to remain a fully functioning estate winery. The vineyard frames our tasting room and production facility creating a picturesque setting on the western shore of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York. With silt loam soils, shale bedrock, and Easterly sloping land that matches near-maximum lake width and depth, Patrician Verona is ideally situated within the Finger Lakes Region to produce premium wine grapes. The grapes include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc, among several other natives and hybrids. By preserving and building soil the grapes are grown on and exploring new ways to reduce environmental impacts, the vines can inhabit a site less altered by modern agricultural inputs. The wines can portray a truer reflection of the Patrician Verona Vineyard site.
