Fox Run Vineyards Riesling 2005

Member Review by schellbe:

Faint nose of fresh baked bread I find in so many NYS Rieslings with a little spic eon nose. Taste of green apple, with strong salty, spicy flavor, very flinty (mineral) with a little lime and grapefruit. Good acids cover the residual sugar, so this wine seems almost dry. This would work with a light seafood dish, or a light cheese. Just a little light to merit a 90 score. (2 views)

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.
