Glenora Wine Cellars Riesling Finger Lakes Dry 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A long, cool fermentation is arrested just shy of bone dry leaving a dry wine balanced with pleasant, fruity, classic Riesling characteristics.

"Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Riesling's uncanny ability to produce wines that are at the same time both deep and delicate is in full evidence here. If in no way a powerful wine

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. With but a bare wisp of sweetness holding it back from being bone-dry, this firm, foodworthy Riesling is a bit tight-fisted as far as outgoing fruit is concerned, but its fresh, green-citrus and mineral themes will make it a welcome companion to a fairly wide range of milder seafoods.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Riesling's uncanny ability to produce wines that are at the same time both deep and delicate is in full evidence here. If in no way a powerful wine, this one is layered and complex with a sneaky sort of richness that only slowly reveals itself. Redolent of lime zest, white peaches and minerals, it balances it obvious sugars with lots of enlivening acidity, and it is so carefully structured that it will deepen and develop for another five or more years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now.

A hint of talc quickly gives way to fresh melon rind, white peach and honeysuckle notes. Shows good zip through the finish. Drink now.

A fresh take on Riesling from New York's Finger Lakes; satiated by crisp, bright, zesty fruits and flavors of honeyed nectarines and candied apricot. When you are unsure as to what to bring to a gathering, this is your surefire hit. The pretty sweetness and lively acidity will satisfy everyone from the White Zinfandel drinker to the Chardonnay lover.

Possesses fresh citrus aromas, a semi-sweet flavor reminiscent of lime and grapefruit, and a refreshing finish.
