2006 is a classic year for Riesling in the Finger Lakes and I could not wait to try this year's Riesling from Chateau Lafayette Reneau. This vineyard on the southeast shore of Seneca Lake has won the Governor's Cup multiple times, and this wine just took a Double Gold and was named "Best International White Wine" at the prestigious Riverside International Wine Competition. Very clean and full citrus nose of grapefruit with vibrant acidity and a full array of stone fruit (very peachy) and citrus in the mouth leading so a long finish. This wine is perfect alone but will pair fantastically with a wide variety of food.

A sweet but spicy nose of honeysuckle and pear, and a flavor profile of tropical fruit and honey, make this Riesling an attractive wine to pair with food or enjoy on its own. There's sweetness but it's well-balanced with a minerality and acid that gives it lift. Good weight but a pretty touch.

The new vintage of an old favorite. Very clean and full citrus nose, with vibrant acidity and full peach fruit in the mouth leading to a long finish.

A refreshing peach and honeysuckle nose; delicate citrus fruit flavors dance in the mouth. The lingering, spicy pear finish and lively texture reveal an abundance of Riesling character. This wine is the reason fish were created.

Oh, the tongue-tingling acidity, and how it plays nicely with the refreshing honeyed, sweetness of this Riesling! This is an easy answer to the "What should we drink tonight?" question. The citrus-like acidity balances its fresh tangerine, apple and honeysuckle fruit. The finish is a peachy-pear montage which will keep you lifting your glass for more.

Showing gorgeously, with honeysuckle, spring flower, clove and holiday spice tones. Thereandrsquo;s well-defined acidity and a lingering apple cider note. Try with cod in a miso sauce.
