A bit of minerality. Overall pretty boring, though extremely citrusy. A very abrupt finish.

a combo of apricots and honey on the nose along with a minerality, spritz like on the palate, bright acidity, citrusy on palate, scrumptious

I went to school in NY's Finger Lakes region, and this is the best NY wine I have ever tasted. My father might call that damning with faint praise, and it was almost 30 years ago, but this was nice. We finished it in one sitting--me, wife, babysitter, but I carried most of the burden.;-) VegasOenophile noted the sea air, which is a little Muscadet like. But I thought this was also subtle and layered. Dry as a bone, but nice white peach, floral aromas in the orange blossom range, flavors of slate and peach, tiny bit of kiwi. But dry as all get out, and with acid to cut through anything that would deaden the palate. This wine can help the non-sticky drinker like me appreciate riesling.

Very well done Riesling. Nose of slight citrus and tropical fruit that is a bit misleading. Light to medium bodied with a surprising burst of sweetness that dissipates as soon as it presents. The is followed by a long, dry palate with hints of slate and minerals with building acidity and a decent finish. Enjoyable and well priced.

Nose of slate, mineral, peach and some floral bloom. Almost a slight hint of fresh shortbread. Crunchy on the palate and dry. Mineral driven, peachy stone fruit. Big acid profile. Sea air. It has a nice, fresh, bright finish. 87 pts.

Tasting Notes:

This surprisingly dry, white wine offers bright aromas of fresh lime, tropical fruit and has a light mineral quality. Very crisp, with the mouth-watering taste of Granny Smith apples, it is well balanced with a lingering finish.

For this wine's production, we use only the noble Johannisberg Riesling grapes which originated in Germany. Riesling has found the perfect second home on the cool, green slopes of New York's Finger Lakes Region. Often bottled slightly sweet, this version is cold-fermented to dryness.
