Harvest 2012: Riesling at Peconic Bay Winery

Posted September 13, 2012 by Lenn Thompson in Regions

Peconic Bay Winery general manager Jim Silver sent this harvest report yesterday:

Harvest of old-vine riesling underway at PBW since 7:30 a.m., and will continue tomorrow (pickers welcome!)

Yields not determined yet (about 2T/ac), brix above 19 degrees.  Nearly rot-free, hand sorted in the field by an experienced crew.  Very slight desiccation of some grapes.

Top quality vintage similar in style to a blending of 2005, 2009 and 2010.”
