2018 Block 9 Ehrenfelser
Ehrenfelser, a unique Riesling/Sylvaner cross of German origin, is perfectly suited for our Lakeshore microclimate, mimicking its ancestral home on the steep slopes of the Rhine River. Harvested from a stony block in our upper vineyard, the 13 – 16-year-old vines produce low yields with intense concentrated orange and mandarin notes. The cool growing season resulted in an intense wine with bright acidity and juicy freshness. Eleven percent of the wine was fermented in neutral oak barrel and spent 4 months on lees to lend richness and texture to the wine.
