External Reviews for Fulkerson Riesling Finger Lakes Semi-Dry
Notice the aromatic tropical bouquet with an accent of pineapple. It is perfectly balanced and sweet, but still crisp. A superb "all occasion" wine to enhance appetizers, roast pork and even dessert. - Winery
Honeyed tropical fruit aromas with vibrant tastes of pineapple and citrus. This versatile semi-dry Riesling pairs well with pork and ham entreacute;es.
Intense tropical aromas are the hallmark of this semi-dry (Johannisberg) Riesling from New Yorkrsquo;s Fulkerson. The flavors mdash; lemon, apricot, apple mdash; are intense but not heavy, and the wine strikes a good balance of acidity and sweetness. Itrsquo;s not the most elegant or integrated of wines but itrsquo;s an excellent wine for food pairing and hot summer days.
A lovely nose, highlighted by honeyed tropical and apricot aromas, is followed by nicely balanced tastes of peach and tangerine citrus. Aging will intensify the aromas and flavors.
