An exceptionally smooth, pleasant wine in true Spätlese style. Great nose of nectarine, sweet grapefruits, pineapple and a touch of nuts. On the palate, an overtone of minerality surrounds rich tropical flavors of mango and pineapple. Finishes on a stony note.

Wiemer always makes beautifully expressive riesling, and this vintage is no exception. The 2003 Semi-Dry is delicate and flowery-scented, with strawberry and peach flavors. A beam of juicy acidity offsets the sweetness and keeps the palate refreshed. Cheers to Wiemer, a German winemaking family whose more than 300 years of experience has certainly influenced the Finger Lakes' level of quality for the better!

Wiemer has been a reliable source for beautifully rendered New York Rieslings. This one is delicate and flowery-scented with strawberry and peach flavors. A beam of juicy acidity offsets the sweetness and keeps the palate refreshed.

This has a slightly off-dry feel, with tasty green apple and pear notes backed by a slate- and floral-tinged finish. Flattering but balanced. Drink now through 2011.

Floral and honey aromas are intriguing, and follow through on the vibrant palate with attractive peach and lime flavors. It's firm, delicate and nicely balanced. A great-value Riesling.

A beautiful freshness permeates this wine, with springlike scents of peach blossom and green herb. Mild sweetness amplifies the fresh peach fruit, all supported by a slatey minerality. A fine aperitif, this would also accompany soft-shell crab.

Winemaker's Notes:

A dry Riesling with a crisp crips minerality and hints of lime and delicate citrus on the nose. Nicely balanced with a touch of honeyed grapefruit on the palate with a clean finish.
