As usual in this region, I found myself drawn toward the 2007 Riesling Dry rather than its "semi-dry" counterpart. Finger Lakes Riesling cannot support residual sugar in the manner of German Riesling. This wine labeled "dry" tastes like what in Germany would be considered "halbtrocken," which is to say it's well balanced with a very faint and appropriate hint of sweetness. Cooling lime and mint mingle with a hint of vanilla on a sleek, soothing palate with plenty of freshness but no distinct impression of acid "cut." A substantial, juicy finish is lent invigoration by faint fruit skin and lime peel astringency and a hint of pungent, bitter-sweet herbs. Enjoy Riesling this over the next 2-3 years.

Hermann Wiemer produces some of the finest New York state wines I have had the pleasure to encounter. Though labeled "Dry," this Riesling still retains a slight hint of sweetness - enough to highlight the flavors of peach, slate, and citrus, but not enough to turn off the average dry wine drinker. Served alongside blackened catfish or chicken and risotto, this was a big hit at my rehearsal dinner.

From tank, the 2005 Riesling Dry looks set to be a winner. Smelling like a honey-laced Normandy cider, it comes onto the palate bright, sappy, and full of appley fruit. It is not the most complex of Rieslings (perhaps with some time?) but is utterly pure and lovely.

Shows nice cut and length, with a lively green apple- and slate-driven profile of admirable precision. The nice crunchy-textured finish lets a green almond note linger. Drink now through 2010.

Lean and beautifully composed, with a thrilling back note of minerality, this stylish dry riesling leads with the scent of fresh-picked golden apples and a hint of brown sugar. Its flavors take on a subtle minty herbal note, giving the wine freshness and lift. Beautifully composed, with a fine, brisk texture and a complex and elegant finish.

Fresh and pure, with tangy slate, pear and green apple notes that stay focused through the brisk, lively finish.

This pleasantly fruity white shows typical Riesling flavors of peach, mineral and light herbs. It's full-bodied yet dry and well balanced.
