90 Points - Wine Enthusiast!
We strive to preserve adequate inventories of library wines, in order to allow you to explore previous vintages of Bellangelo wines, and to see how the wine has progressed after years in bottle. Sorry, but we limit purchase of past vintages to 3 bottles.
Our Gibson Vineyard Riesling makes its debut with the legendary 2012 vintage, and honors the vineyard owner, Marty Gibson. Mr. Gibson hails from a prominent Finger Lakes wine grape growing family, and his ten acre vineyard on the west side of Seneca Lake is optimally located to take advantage of gentle warm lake breezes that add days and weeks to the growing season late into the fall. This single vineyard Riesling was fermented slow to preserve its delicious fruit, and fermentation was stopped when the sugar/alcohol balance was at its optimum level to create a rich, luscious wine.
