Review date: August 25, 2017

Wine Review: This pale straw colored dry-styled Riesling from the Finger Lakes opens with a very fragrant floral and lychee bouquet with hints of apricot. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, off-dry and very ripe. The flavor profile is a peach and lychee blend with notes of minerality and hints of apricot, ginger and golden apple. The finish is off-dry and lingers nicely. This wine reminded us more of a Gewurz than a Riesling. We thought it was very good and would pair it General Gau chicken and macaroons with an apricot mousse. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The finest qualities of the estate are expressed in our Reserve Dry Riesling, an exclusive wine spotlighting unique characteristics from all three of our vineyard sites. Small selections of grapes are meticulously chosen from specifically identified lots, which are fermented separately and then blended to create the exquisite balance of juiciness, freshness, and minerality displayed in this specialty bottling. A brilliant, tangy nose heralds a burst of stone fruit and citrus zest on the palate. Fruit and minerality play into a lingering finish that continues to make the mouth water long after the wine is gone. Food Pairing: Asian cuisine, Chicken, Pork
