Fox Run Riesling Finger Lakes 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Noted wine reviewer Dan Berger wrote: "It’s not unthinkable that at some point in the near future, the phrase "Finger Lakes" will conjure up thoughts of great Riesling in the way that "Napa Valley" evokes thoughts of Cabernet Sauvignon." And with every vintage it becomes clearer and clearer that the best Rieslings outside of Germany are from New York’s Finger Lakes region. 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. This 2009 shows wonderful citrus notes on the nose. Slightly sweet but balanced by bright persistent acidity. The finish brings lime and mineral flavors that linger. Perfect match for seafood and rich foods.

Situated on the slopes overlooking one of the deepest parts of Seneca Lake is Fox Run -- a winery with fifty acres of vineyards producing a remarkable range of fine wines. Under the dynamic, forward-looking leadership of Scott Osborn, Fox Run has become one of the truly great producers in the Finger Lakes region just south of Rochester, New York. Native grape varieties put the Finger Lakes on the map a century and half ago, and French-American hybrids, bred for cold resistance, still have an important niche in the region. But Osborn was convinced that non-hybrid European Vinifera grapes could yield wine excellent enough to put the Finger Lakes in the ranks of the world’s top fine wine producers. For more than a century Fox Run was a dairy farm. The first grapes were not planted until 1985, and the barn, erected shortly after the Civil War, was restored and converted to a winery and tasting room with a spectacular view of the lake in 1989.
