Hermann J. Wiemer Magdalena Vineyard Dry Riesling 2012

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

This has a broad, welcoming feel, with a mix of yellow apple, melon and pear flavors lined with honeysuckle and white ginger hints. Firms up just a touch on the finish, showing a twinge of apple core that imparts cut and balance. Drink now through 2018.

Riesling-obsessed connoisseurs know how important Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard's pioneering work is to wine. Hermann, born in Germany with an extensive wine family background, discovered the Finger Lakes in the 1960's, and its cool climate and gravelly soil reminded him of the Mosel Valley. Realizing the untapped potential of the Finger Lakes region, he started to grow classic European vines along selected sites on one of the most prominent properties in the Finger Lakes. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard estate grown wines are established from traditions of excellence and have a reputation for being exceptionally lush, crisp and well balanced. Hermann J.

From Wiemer’s warmest site, there’s a warmth of flavor here that amounts to a generous introduction. Scents of turbinado sugar and pineapple lead; the flavors are expressed with a pleasing intensity, the apple and lemon accents having a tropical back note. Its rich texture gains focus by a firm phenolic bite, keeping the wine racy and on point. For steamed whole fish with scallions.
