Scott Osborne – Fox Run Vineyards Fingerlakes

Why should people drink New York wine?

For the same reason I came here from California. In 1984, I came back to visit family here in the Finger Lakes. I visited Wagner Vineyards and tasted their 1982 Chardonnay. It was barrel fermented and aged in oak barrels. This is when I discovered what cool climate Chardonnay was all about. The elegant flavors with the snappy acidity were what Chardonnay should taste like. So I moved here to make Chardonnay. When I got here I discovered how fabulous Riesling was. Before I left California I was told I would never make a red wine again. When I got here I discovered how beautiful Cabernet Franc and Lemberger were. These wines are all so enjoyable they should be tried often.

Niet te geloven dat het bijna 30 jaar geleden is dat ik hier rond liep. Wordt werkelijk weer tijd om alles op te frissen!
