Region: USA> New York> Finger Lakes> Cayuga Lake.

Light-bodied wine with soft, pretty aromatics of dried flowers, red berries, and hints of earthy forest floor. In true Beaujolais fashion, you may serve this wine with a slight chill, however, the option is yours to decide. Made from Gamay Noir with a touch of Syrah, wine was fermented in a tank and aged in used French barrels. Sheldrake Point sits prominently on the western shore of Cayuga Lake and our vineyards stretch virtually to the beach, situated on a slope between two gorges that feed into Cayuga Lake. The site is blessed with well-drained, glacier soils, derived from shale, limestone and slate, and considered ideal for grape production.
Food Pairing: Salmon, Game meats, Charcuterie, etc.
