The highly anticipated launch of the 2012 Tierce Dry Riesling is here! Held at Red Newt Wine Cellars on July 5th, the celebration will highlight three cool-climate vineyards, three winemakers and one remarkable wine. Tierce Dry Riesling represents a unique collaboration between Anthony Road Wine Company, Fox Run Vineyards and Red Newt Wine Cellars – integrating not only the varying vineyard expressions of Seneca Lake, but also the individual philosophies of the participating winemakers.
Peter Bell (Fox Run), Johannes Reinhardt (Anthony Road) and David Whiting (Red Newt) have peered through the prism of cool-climate terroir to produce Tierce. Drawing from three distinct winegrowing subregions of Seneca Lake, this Riesling offers complexities and nuances that set it apart from all others – making it uniquely Finger Lakes.
This year’s event will have a special guest as the event emcee. British wine writer Stuart Pigott has the honor of introducing the new Tierce Riesling to the crowd. Tierce is mentioned in his newly released book, Best White Wine on Earth: The Riesling Book, which will be available for purchase during the event as well. Stuart Pigott has traveled the world researching this grape varietal and is very familiar with the rise in popularity Finger Lakes Riesling is having around the world.
Guests will have the opportunity to taste the separate 2012 Tierce Dry Riesling varietal components. Only then will the 2012 Tierce be poured. The event is the first opportunity to purchase the 2012 Tierce Riesling. Tickets are $45 per person and available online at www.tierce2012.eventbrite.com. Doors open at 7 pm.
Mingle with the "Tierce Brothers" and enjoy light appetizers throughout the evening. Guests will be welcomed with a favorite summer-time wine from each winery. The Official Welcome will start at 7:15PM with an interesting tasting of the separate 2012 Tierce Dry Riesling varietal components. Only then will the 2012 Tierce be poured. The event will have the 2012 Tierce available for purchase and time for the three winemakers to autograph bottles.
