Hermann J. Wiemer Riesling Dry Magdalena 2013

External Review:

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. 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.

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.

Very fresh and well-delineated already, with nice cut to the Jonagold apple, honeysuckle, white peach and green almond notes. The long finish lets a quinine note play out while pulling from dry to off-dry and back again. Drink now through 2012.

The Magdalena Vineyard is the northernmost of Wiemerandrsquo;s properties, and one of the warmest sites in the Finger Lakes. That, plus the unique elevation, soil and proximity to Seneca Lake, produces a rich, deep, fruit-driven wine with spectacular flavors, complexity and finesse. A brilliant bouquet of fresh citrus and apple leads into a refreshingly fruit-forward palate and a lush, bold finish.

Ripe, with a nice mouthfilling core of yellow apple and pink grapefruit fruit laced with tangy hints of slate and lime that give the finish a mouthwatering, chiseled edge. Drink now through 2014.

From one of the warmest riesling sites in the Finger Lakes, this complex white has a sweet brown sugar top note adorning apple scents. The flavors are deep, mildly nutty, focused and tense, with the finish going toward grapefruit. Cellar for a year, then serve with roast char.
