Producer Profile Nathan Kendall
Nathan K wines was founded in 2011 by Finger Lakes (New York) native Nathan Kendall, an internationally trained winemaker with a passion for creating old world style wines using quality grapes and minimal intervention. Nathan's focus is on Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. All lots are carefully sorted, and the pristine fruit then undergoes long spontaneous fermentations. Post fermentation, the wine ages for months on the gross lees to enhance the texture. Wines are then carefully racked, never fined, and gently filtered before bottling. The bottled wines then receive 2-3 years of bottle age to evolve and achieve the best possible expression of the Finger Lakes.
