Roman Roth shared some exciting news (at least for riesling lovers) with me over the weekend.
He’s making a Grapes of Roth 2007 Riesling.
Roman found 4 tons of fruit at Split Rock Vineyard in Greenport, and as he put it "The grapes looked great when I first saw them with a low yield of 2 tons per acre and so I jumped at the opportunity. We have been babying it here at the winery. At the moment it is fermenting at extremely low temperature of 56 Fahrenheit and it is looking good."
Just like the GoR merlots, only about 200 cases will be made, and they should be released next spring sometime.
