Wine Review: This pale straw colored Late Harvest Riesling from the Finger Lakes is very nice. It opens with a floral bouquet with hints of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, slightly sweet and pleasant. The flavor profile is mild Anjou pear with hints of minerality, lime and apricot. The finish remains slightly sweet and its flavors fade away nicely. This Late Harvest Riesling is food friendly and would pair well with spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This enticing Riesling is crafted in the traditional German Spatlese style, with moderate natural sweetness counterpoised by a bright, invigorating liveliness. Spatlese wines have a greater intensity and strength than Kabinett-style wines, though are still the lightest of the late harvest wines. The outcome is a wine with an elegant yet luscious nose, followed by a generous palate of crisp ripe fruit and floral notes, lingering into a long, naturally sweet finish. Our exceptional late harvest wine pairs well with soft or blue cheeses and fruit, with lighter roasted or barbequed meats, or serves as a refreshing after-dinner wine.
