Food Pairings for Fox Run Vineyards Riesling
Editorial Reviews for Fox Run Vineyards Riesling
Very floral, chalky earth and sweet smelling, this really has a mineral edge and a golden, weirdly waxy tone to the nose with a note of chenin dried floral/pollen, meaty and a bit cat pee, grassy, not entirely attractive,. Fairly sweet entry then rather steely and lean along the midpalate with a perfumed, almost cherry fruit tone that compliment the apricot tones, lean and austere that bit of cat pee that becomes more assertive on the finish, very interesting stuff but a bit challenging as well 87pts

External Reviews for Fox Run Vineyards Riesling
A pretty, apple and peach-infused white, supported by a vibrant structure. Shows some depth, too, picking up a vanilla note midpalate through the finish. Drink now through 2002.
Noted wine critic 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 lush Riesling is from Fox Run Vineyards which is located on Seneca Lake and in 2008 was the first New York state winery to be named in Wine & Spirits Magazine's Top 100 Wineries in the World. Seneca has a high proportion of the region’s wineries because it’s very large (40 miles long) and very deep (over 400 feet). And this massive body of water provides a unique tempering effect to the vineyards along its banks. This wine is a full-bodied style with a touch of sweetness that balances beautifully with the bright acidity. Mineral, floral and ripe fruity notes abound on the nose and on the palate. Very limited production.
This wine displays ripe and complex aromas suggestive of apricot, pear and lime. Rich and soft with a finely balanced finish.
Lovely peach and spricot aromas and flavors highlight this spätlese-style Riesling, which offers a rich texture and a cleaning finish that balances the hint of sweetness. Drink now.
Fresh, with a bracing edge to the lime, green apple and chamomile hints. There's good cut on the finish. Drink now.
This lively Riesling offers aromas of citrus, apricot and honey, followed by layers of white fruit, spice and pepper. The wine has a slightly sweet fruity character but it's balanced by acid and minerals. The fun but impressive Riesling.
Light and dry in style, with peach, lime and floral notes. Fresh, flinty finish. Nice cut here. Drink now.
