Hermann J. Wiemer Riesling Dry Finger Lakes 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Hermann J. Wiemer is considered one of the top Riesling producers in the United States and Dry Riesling is their signature wine. This elegant 2014 Finger Lakes white is fermented in small lots and offers aromas of lime and orange blossom on the nose. On the palate, succulent flavors of apricot and grapefruit with excellent balance, beautiful texture, trademark minerality and a long, lingering finish. Pairs well with Asian cuisine, poultry and shellfish.
