External Reviews for Hermann J. Wiemer Chardonnay Finger Lakes
Fermented in French oak, this is a big, full-bodied white with great structure and balance.
Herman Wiemer's unique ability to combine the tradition and skills of the old world with the vigor and modern techniques of the new has quickly established its reputation as a leader in producing high quality wines which are recognized throughout the world. Barrel fermented in French oak, the aromas and flavors reveal a dry, full-bodied complexity that is well structured with excellent acid and fruit balance.
If your palate is begging for a rest from super-heavy, super-oaky California Chardonnays, give this one a try. Crafted in New York in the classic French style - restrained, with great tropical fruit notes and crisp acidity, tempered by subtle toasted nut flavors on the long, buttery finish. Close your eyes and you'll swear this is a $30 Pouilly-Fuissé!
A crisp unoaked chardonnay built with aromas of fresh peaches and grapefruit. An appealing balance between lean ripe stonefruit and citrus blossom develops on the palate. Fresh crisp and lingering finish.
This sparkler’s fresh mousse lifts sour candy and baked-biscuit lees notes. The flavors are rich and mouthfilling with a firm texture, and the mildly herbal finish suggests pairing with herbed farro salad.

Bone dry with aromas of freshly pressed apples, this is an austere but elegant sparkling blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With notes of delicate white florals and yeast in the backdrop, the palate has a savory, dusty quality accented by a racy acidity and strong, minerally finish.
