Hermann J. Wiemer Riesling Reserve Dry 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

From all three of Wiemer’s estate vineyard sources, there’s an aromatic tension here between brisk citrus accents and the richer scents of saffron and golden apple that provide a seductive depth of flavor. This is a wine that starts rich and broad, and finishes bright and citrusy, with juiciness that drives the wine toward a long finish.

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.

Shows the slightly loose edge of the vintage, but there's very solid range to this, featuring Jonagold apple, heather, papaya, dried pineapple and quince notes, with a flicker of shortbread on the inviting finish. Drink now through 2015.
