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.

External Reviews for Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard Late Harvest Riesling
This elegant riesling displays remarkable tension between fleshy fruit and penetrating acidity. Scents of lemon and apple give way to caramel and Thai pineapple; flavors seesaw between generous and terse, the finish as taut as a pulled rope. A pleasing conundrum that will only gain definition in the cellar; then pair with tea-smoked trout.
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.
Off-dry, but with good freshness to the kiwifruit, pear and Granny Smith apple notes. The open-knit finish has nice persistence. Drink now.
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.
Flattering and forward, but with good drive, as off-dry apple, piecrust, candied lime peel and quince notes bounce along from start to finish. Drink now.
For little more than the price of the dry version, consumers seeking noble sweetness can purchase Wiemer's 2007 Riesling Late Harvest. Pear, quince, and candied citrus rind inform this silken-smooth, quite sweet, but persistently juicy offering. Very subtle hints of botrytis pungency in no way disturb the admirable sense of purity on display here, and while there is certainly refreshment to be had here, one will not confuse this wine's overall softness with any German Spatlese or Auslese. This wine is ideal simply for sipping over the coming 3-5 years.
Hermann is definitely the master of his domaine. This could be the best American late harvest Riesling ever made. Lively apricot and nectarine components lead to lighter elements of kumquat and gooseberry. A nice mixture of honeysuckle makes this a fabulous, not-to-be-missed Riesling. Light enough to go with full-bodied chicken, and an absolute knockout with lobster.
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.
