Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards Riesling Finger Lakes 2008

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

With its playful balance of sweetness and acid, and its enticing aroma of apples and honey, this offers a pretty, easy-going wine experience. Paired with a chicken salad or a plate of spicy Asian fare, the wine is a great choice and the price is right. Its minerality gives it food-pairing flexibility, so experiment.

A perfect companion to the fall harvest season, this easy-drinking Riesling is evocative of candied apples and warm apple pie spice. There's not a lot of complexity, but it's light and fresh in the mouth with a puckery lime and sour patch candy finish.

Made in the classic Finger Lakes Riesling style, offering a nose of honey and ripe peaches with full fruit in the mouth, balanced by sheer acidity.

Juicy, with apple, fig, fennel and spice notes. Medium-bodied, with a hint of sweetness and good length on the finish. Nicely done.

This Riesling from the east side of Seneca Lake exhibits classic flavors of white peach and melon, hints of honey and mineral and floral overtones.

This Riesling starts with aromas of orange, peach and lemon, and on the palate, rich fruit and citric flavors unfold. Simply good, and pretty, this wine makes for a good, chilled solo dip on the patio.

A friendly, open-knit style, with apple, fennel and fig notes that linger on the slightly broad finish.
