Tasting Wine List

 WHITES:

2018 Chardonnay, $16.00/ bottle: Fermented in 3rd year oak barrels.  This is a full bodied Chard with a smooth finish and flavor notes of pear and pineapple.  This wine should cellar well and improve with age.

Seyval Blanc, $15.50/ bottle, A crisp semi-dry wine with citrus fruit aromas and a flavor that presents hints of grapefruit and lemon.  Great for seafood pairings.  A Seyval for the Pinot Gris & Sauvignon Blanc lover.

Seyval Blanc Sparkling (“Pet Nat”), $19.00/ bottle, A sparkling wine made in a Petillant Naturel style.  This Seyval Blanc was bottled before fermentation was complete, trapping carbon dioxide in the bottle resulting in a lightly sparkling wine.  No sulfites. Sediment in the bottle is part of this style wine.  Store upright, serve cold.   Refreshing and crisp!

NOHO Blush, $15.00/bottle, $28.00 1.5 L eco bag.  An off-dry blush. A wonderful blend of 87% Chardonel, and 13% Chambourcin. A floral/ raspberry aroma to start, with flavors that hint of citric fruits and raspberries.  Crisp refreshing finish.

Cayuga White, $16.00/ bottle, $27.00 1.5 L eco bag.  A wine made on the sweet side.  Light fruity aromas with sweet melon and tropical fruit flavors, along with a hint of peach.  Best served cold.

MAY WINE, $16.00 bottle, $29.00 1.5 L eco bag.  A traditional semi-sweet German wine, it is Riesling wine that is infused with sweet woodruff. Floral aromas, with sweet undertones of freshly cut hay and flavors of honey, nutmeg and apple. Make a Mai Wein punch by adding strawberries, something bubbly and garnish with fresh strawberries.

Apple wine, $13.00 /bottle.  Made with local apples. Late variety apple aromas and wonderful blended flavors of Macoun, Honey Crisp and other apples, with a semi-sweet cider like finish.  Pairs very well with turkey, pork roast or just sipping with cheese and crackers.

Ice Apple Wine*, $30.00 375 ml bottle. Made from our own apples, frozen then pressed, this ice wine is truly a dessert wine full of concentrated apple sweetness and just the right amount of alcohol for a nicely balanced wine.  A limited production wine, only 237 bottles.

Mead (Honey Wine) $15.00/bottle.  An effervescent off-dry honey wine with floral aromas hinting of lavender and other floral sources.  This wine really reveals a nice wild flower honey flavor.  Hints of wild flower & herbs come through in the finish.  Our bees nailed it again.

2018 Chambourcin, $16.00 A stainless steel fermented off-dry red.  Berry aromas to start, fruit forward flavors of raspberry and strawberry dominate with an easy going finish.  Reminiscent of a Beaujolais Nouveau style red wine.

Frontenac, $16.00 A semi-sweet deep, rich full bodied wine with a wonderful fruit forward aroma and excellent flavors of dark cherry and raspberry jam.  This wine was lightly oaked giving it enough soft tannin to provide a really nice balance to the fruit in this wine. A soft fruity red with a long soft finish.  Appealing!

Red Hen Red, $16.00/bottle, $27.00/ 1.5 L eco bag- Crisp/bright, fruity sweet wine, with cherry and some light raspberry flavors.  Hints of dark chocolate from start to finish.  Half way to a sangria.  Just add your fruit and you are good to go. Great for picnics or just lounging on the deck.
