Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard Semi-Dry Riesling 2011
"The Semi-Dry Riesling pairs an appropriate balance of sweetness and natural acidity to showcase the variety’s true flavors. An off-dry style allows this wine to be more versatile and often serves as a compromise wine for those trying to decide between different white styles. This wine remains delicate and fruit forward with lemon zest on the nose and bright tangerine on the tongue, leaving the mouth subtly coated into the finish." Winery notes
External Reviews for Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard Semi-Dry Riesling
HJW is definitely my favorite producer in New York State and this wine embodies what I love about them: using old world techniques they produce some of my favorite whites. Their Semi-Dry Riesling IS my favorite wine. A gorgeous nose gives way to floral aromas and lemon zest. Medium-bodied; the entry is sweet but balanced well by the acidity. Plenty of citrus in this wine; it finishes off-dry. A nice compromise when palates collide.
