Food Pairings for Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard Late Harvest Riesling
Late harvest botrytised Riesling from the finger lakes. Sweet! Literally. 3.3% residual sugar (22.5% natural sugar at harvest) that overwhelms the acidity just a bit, but it is still a wonderful wine that pairs with a variety of dishes. Classic Riesling flavors with a tiny bit of petrol & botrytis. Lovely.
We found this lightly sweet with well balanced acidity. Great for use with desserts. Great floral notes on the nose with peach, lime and mineral flavors.
External Reviews for Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard Late Harvest Riesling
Features an off-dry edge, with kiwifruit and green melon flavors balanced on a flattering frame. Key lime and meringue notes hang through the friendly finish. Drink now.
This takes a day to show itself, starting off with a sweet burst of flavor and the lift to carry it. The wine accrues an unexpected concentration over time, the fruit accents more focused in their delivery, like a beam of peach-colored light. It seems to have the stuff to age, so cellar, and see what it can do two to four years down the line.
Wiemer has created some of the most beautifully well-made Rieslings in the world. I’d put many of their wines up against some of the best known German producers. The Late Harvest Riesling is richer and more full-bodied than their Semi-Dry, with a smooth, round mouthfeel and bold but vibrant white fruit flavors. This wine is gorgeous now, but we’ve had older vintages that have aged magnificently, becoming more honeyed and unfolding greater depth after a few years.
Inviting, with a gorgeous beam of persimmon, apricot and blood orange fruit flavors allied to a creamy, lush frame. Fig, green tea and creamed pear notes then fill out the lengthy finish, with great underlying snap. Drink now through 2019.
As Mosel a wine as you're likely to find this side of the Atlantic, this is Spätlese peachiness through and through. The fresh white peach fruit is nothing short of delicious, the racy acidity lifting it and carrying it long into the finish. Chill a bottle for a harvest luncheon with cheese, charcuterie and sliced apples.
This late-harvest white retains bracing aromas of passion fruit and citrus. its sweet melon flavors and luxurious length have both classic Spatlese weight and the briskness for Sichuan prawns.
Offers a mix of fruits, with melon and mango flirting with lemon, peach and yellow apple notes, all allied to a creamy texture. Nice length, with a more off-dry than obviously sweet feel through the finish. Drink now through 2010.
Crafted in the traditional Spatlese style, the Late Harvest presents yet another approach to this classic variety. Additional time on the vine allows the grapes to fully develop their flavor profiles. The later picking also helps sugars to consolidate, resulting in a sweeter full bodied wine. An appropriate level of alcohol helps to make this wine delicate and approachable with a moderate level of residual sweetness. Honeyed citrus and green apple accent the nose, while peach and apricot float across the tongue.
