Dry Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Characteristics A crisp and flowery wine with hints of mineral and citrus fruit. Dry Rieslings, in general, have just started to gain a foothold in the U.S. market. Heron Hill’s Dry Riesling is crisp with a sharp well-defined balance, making it a perfect food wine. Food Pairings Wonderful and complete on its own chilled to 50-55°F. Works well with hard-to-pair items such as salad with balsamic vinaigrette or a Thai curry coconut prawn soup. Pairs with white meats and seafood. The higher the fat content, the drier the Riesling should be. Awards Gold - Grand Harvest Awards

Heron Hill Winery, world-class wine, ambiance and experience. Heron Hill Winery is nestled into a hill overlooking scenic Keuka Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes region. For over 35 years the winery has set the highest standards for wine quality, customer satisfaction and tasting room experience. Since its first vintage in 1977, Heron Hill has steadily grown from a small 5,000 case winery that only made white wines into a dynamic 20,000 case production facility and entertainment destination for more than 50,000 people every year. Heron Hill’s grape grower and owner, John Ingle often says that Heron Hill has “boot prints in its vineyards, not tire tracks.” People maintain the vines at Heron Hill, not machines. This personal approach and commitment to quality is evident throughout every aspect of making, serving, and selling Heron Hill’s wines. These guiding principles have remained constant through the years – from hand-maintaining the vineyards to hand-harvesting grapes to offering educational and enjoyable tastings and hosting events that combine food, wine, and entertainment. Today, Heron Hill offers nearly 20 wine varieties; crisp and light Rieslings, aromatic dry Chardonnays, the winery’s legendary Eclipse series, spicy, exotic Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Francs, and our winemaker’s specially crafted dessert wines. During the past nearly 35 years, Heron Hill has won many awards for its distinctive, elegant wines and continues to be at the forefront of Finger Lakes winemaking. In 2006, Heron Hill opened a satellite tasting room and gift shop on the West side of Seneca Lake.  Read less
