Hermann J. Wiemer Riesling Dry 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A crisp dry Johannisberg Riesling in the classic German Mosel Kabinett style. The nose is light and delicate with hints of fresh fruit. Elegant in taste, it is smooth and well balanced with a crisp, clean finish. An outstanding party, reception and general drinking wine.

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. Wiemer Vineyard is founded on the philosophy of quality and hand crafted wines. Located on the shores of Seneca Lake, the well drained sloping shalestone bedrock and Honeoye silt loam soil lend itself to the production of what critics consider to be some of the best grown Rieslings in America.

Citrusy, lime-driven nose and crisp apple, pear and citrus flavors. Balanced with fresh acidity, the finish is longer than you might expect.

A beautiful wine with a citrusy, lime-driven nose and crisp apple, pear and citrus flavors. Balanced with fresh acidity, the finish is longer than you might expect.

I am a dry Riesling lover and I'm lucky enough to live near the Finger Lakes region - so I 've tried most Rieslings from the primary wineries here. This, I would agree, is one of the most outstanding. Wiemer knows how to do wines right, especially Riesling (nicely balanced but you'll remember the citrus about it) and sparkling wine, which will surprise you with its intensity.

A "true" Riesling can't get any better than this! New York is known for it's Rieslings, and this is one of THE best there is!

Always an excellent choice for the region. Traditional Riesling in the states is a rarity. If you are a fan of Riesling or enjoy a more festive white wine, then this is a great pick up. This wine should run you from 7 - 10 dollars depending on where you purchase it. Wiemer sadly more often than not has issues with their storage. be very careful upon purchasing this wine for bad corks. Purchase this from a wine seller that will let you exchange or bring back the wine if the cork is bad.

It could easily be stated that Hermann Wiemer produces the best dry Riesling in thecountry. This is a crisp, dry Riesling in the classic German Mosel Kabinett style. Thenose is light and delicate with hints of fresh fruit. Elegant in taste, it is smooth and well balanced with a crisp, clean finish.
