The Wine: Riesling Shaw Vineyard 2017
Liten Buffel Riesling Shaw Vineyard 2017 is a skin contact natural wine made from 100% Riesling grapes farmed sustainably in the Seneca Lake region, New York State. Riesling Shaw Vineyard is bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no added sulfites. Medium body orange wine with notes of honey and baked apple, crisp and refreshing on the palate.
The Producer: Liten Buffel
Patrick Vaughn and Zack Klug of Liten Buffel focus on low intervention wines that reflect a sense of place and time. They are minimalists in the cellar, and in the vineyard. Their wines are dry, unfined, unfiltered, and with no sulfites added. Just foot crushed grapes settled in old wood and bottled by hand at the proper time.
