The "Knoll" is a pristine vineyard on a well drained knoll above the rest of Lahoma Vineyards. In a moderate boytritis harvest, this was the latest pick and cleanest fruit that came to Red Newt Cellars. A riper more tropical expression of Riesling, the palate is weighty with a core of stone fruit and minerality packed into this lush wine.

Sourced from a vineyard on the west side of Seneca Lake, this semidry wine offers sunny aromas of canned peach, yellow blossoms and saffron on the nose. The medium-bodied palate is luscious and creamy in feel, with a grip of dried apricot rind and focused acidity providing a fine counterbalance. It offers excellent concentration, depth and balance.

The 2015 Riesling The Knoll - Lahoma Vineyards is from Seneca Lake, with four grams of residual sugar, 7.5 of total acidity and 13.2% alcohol. When last seen, this looked pretty fine, this being only the third vintage of this bottling. Lively and bright, this has a touch of the grapefruit that I saw on the Tango Oaks, but here it is a more minor nuance (or, nuisance, depending on your view). Expressive, a little delicate, but surprisingly persistent, this young Riesling is on track to develop and age well. It has the structure and the concentration.
