Item Description

An aromatic and dry white blend from the original natural winemakers of the New York's Finger Lakes. Primarily Cayuga, a hybrid grape that does well in the cool climate of upstate New York, with the expressive German variety Gewurztraminer and a dash of Riesling. The Gewurztraminer signature lychee notes does appear, but as the wine opens it gains an intense and lovely greenness akin to dill and capers. Organic farming for the grapes, all wild yeast, no filtering or fining.

"Following in the tradition of the Alsace, the Edelzwicker wines are blends of: Riesling; Gewurztraminer; the Finger Lakes own grape Cayuga White; and other white varietals. These wines, like the 100 vinifera wines, are made in small batches and minimally processed. Use of the fairly neutral, disease resistant, and heavy yielding variety Cayuga White, allows them to bottle an affordable wine. With careful blending they can create a delightfully crisp and complex wine." ~ Producer Notes

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

View all from Bloomer Creek Vineyard
Bloomer Creek VineyardIn 1982 Kim Engle and Deb Bermingham purchased a 30-acre farm in the Finger Lakes region, 10 acres of which they planted to a variety of cool climate grapes. They named the vineyard Bloomer Creek and for the last three decades they have meticulously farmed it using organic methods.
They employ no herbicides, no irrigation, fruit is hand-harvested, and only natural native yeasts are used for fermentation. They often utilize whole clusters in their winemaking, including the whites, extended lees aging, and they allow fermentations to progress at their own rate without using temperature control.
In a part of the world where winemakers don't often take risks, Bloomer Creek seems afraid not to and the results are wonderful. Both their whites and their reds are incredibly distinctive, age-worthy and expressive of the place and time in which they were produced. That place is the Finger Lakes, and Bloomer Creek may be the single most unique, and compelling voice in town.
