With every vintage it becomes clearer that New York's Finger Lakes region Rieslings are world class. The similarities to Germany's Mosel are numerous; both are cool climate regions, both have slate-filled soil which provides good drainage and a distinct mineral character to the grapes, both have the warming effect of a body of water. 2014's growing season was a classic nail-biter. Cool and wet conditions predominated through the spring and summer, giving growers little hope of a high-quality crop. But as summer turned to fall, rain stopped falling and we enjoyed a prolonged dry and sunny end to the season. As a result, we were able to make some of the tastiest wines of the last decade. This Riesling is vinified dry and pairs with foods beautifully.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "Whiffs of struck flint and smoke meander from the nose to the finish on this dry Riesling, accenting fresh white grapefruit, lemon and lime. Tonic in feel, it's invigorating—zippy refreshment for youthful enjoyment."
