Johnson Estate Liebestrpfchen 2010

External Review:

Liebestrpfchen ("Little Love Drops") is a rich, fruity, semi-sweet wine similar in flavor and character to a fine French Sauternes. While rather too sweet for dinner, Liebestrpfchen is excellent with desserts such as fruit or fruit crepes, strudel, cheesecake, or many kinds of pie. It is also very enjoyable by itself, with or without ice.

Family-owned and operated. Specializing in world-class Riesling and ice wines - including red and white ice wine. Grapes have been grown on the Johnson Estate for well over a century, and the Johnson Winery, established in 1961, is now the oldest exclusively estate winery in New York State. All of the choice European and American wine grapes used to make our wines are grown within 3000 feet of the winery. This allows us to take full advantage of the chateau system of wine-growing and making. Every vintage is a “handcrafted” limited production, and the entire vinification process, including the crushing, pressing, fermentation, aging, and bottling occurs on the estate under the Johnson Family’s direct control. Thus, the superb quality of our wine is constantly supervised from the vineyard to the bottle, and, like the finest wines of Europe, Johnson Estate wines are “grown, vinified and bottled in the Chateau Tradition.” Read less

Johnson Estate Liebestropfchen, which translates as "little love drops," is a late harvest expression of one of Americas greatest hybrid grapes, the Delaware. The perfumed nose is reminiscent of rose pedals and leads to full, rich flavors of apple, cinnamon and kiwi with clove breaking through on the long finish. Enjoy this wine with apple pie, peach cobbler or even by itself, over ice.

The translation "Little Love Drops" is a rich, fruity, semi-sweet wine similar in flavor and character top a fine French Sauternes. This luscious pale golden 100% Delaware wine uniquely captures the fully ripened essence of the Delaware grape.

The name means "little love drops" and there's a lot here to love! Made from the Delaware grape, this wine has a pale gold color and is rich, fruity and semi-sweet.

From right in our own backyard in western New York, Johnson Estate is the state's oldest family estate winery. Liebestropfchen (literally, "Little Love Drops") is a fun, semi-sweet, grapey white made from the indigenous New York grape Delaware. Fans of other sweet whites such as Niagara, Moscato or Riesling should take note - this wine is terrific with ice cream sundaes or pastries, and terrific for just kicking back on the porch on a warm summer night.
