Bloomer Creek Barrow Vineyard Skin Contact Riesling 2019


In 2013, Bloomer Creek purchased a vineyard, abandoned for over 30 years, on the east side of Seneca Lake. The high rocky hillside was planted to eight acres of vines; Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Vinified from extended skin-contact and spontaneously fermented in stainless-steel, this Riesling is a compelling interplay between minerality and sumptuous fruit. Unfined and unfiltered, with minimal S02 only at bottling. Barrow in Old Norse means “high rocky hill and burial mound.
