Tasting Notes

The Riesling grapes were handpicked from the Gridley Bluff Vineyard on Keuka Lake. Full of white peach and grapefruit flavors, an excellent match for Thai dishes and pork with apricot glaze. Barry Family Cellars was founded in 2011 by father and son, Ken and Ian Barry.

Staff Pick Notes

Natty wines from the Finger Lakes region? Sign me up. After some stints with conventional and minimalist wineries, Ian Barry made his way to Seneca Lake where he produces a small production of low intervention wines from both traditional vitis vinifera and hybrid varietals. All the handpicked grapes go through a tiny manual press that looks like a small barrel (kinda nifty!). His dry Riesling is ever the darling; blending grapes from Seneca and Keuka Lakes. This is a lean, crisp and mineral-driven white that strikes with zingy acidity. Its flavor profile leans all into those tangy green fruits: gooseberry, lime zest, white melon, Granny Smith apples with sparks of ruby red grapefruit to provide that quaffable punch. This would absolutely be pleasant for your next seafood supper while keeping it New York local.
