Lakewood Vineyards Riesling 2016

Member Review by Mark Angelillo:

Tropical fruit nose is lighter than the heavy citrus on the palate. Good freshness and acidity, this is a tart wine that would pair well with a nice creamy cheese.

In 1951, Frank Stamp, DDS decided to quit dentistry in Maryland and try his hand at farming. The Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farm, a run-down peach and apple orchard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The next spring they started planting grapes. The original grapes planted were primarily Labrusca and French-American Hybrid varieties, which were favored by the large wineries and grape juice companies. In the mid-80's the family diversified to add some new hybrid varieties and Vinifera plantings. The commercial grape production continued for 36 years, until 1988 when Monty (Frank's son), Beverly and their children pressed the grapes for their first vintage. Today, with 70 acres of grapes planted, the farm is home to Lakewood Vineyards winery. The winery produces wines from all three families of grapes, offering a very diverse selection of wines. The vineyards have been maintained and expanded as the demands for varieties shift. Using a combination of cutting edge technology and traditional winemaking practices the Stamp family, working with a very dedicated staff, is committed to producing consistently high quality wines. The friendly retail room is open for tasting and sales daily. Read less

Nice oily, petroleum nose. Off dry, and with good acidity. After the initial softening effect of the sugar, the acidity really powers through, its tart with a lemony, citrus finish. Pretty nice, and a good deal for the price.

Chilled glass at the end of a Hump-day @Snooth. Pretty good!

Acidic, but not overpowering.

Very refreshing and citrussy, almost too much lemon for my taste. Heavy flowers and peaches in the aroma, definitely getting some creaminess.

    Lacked some of the tingly acidity I've grown to love with Rieslings but overall seems well balanced and offers up an array of light sweet peachy, appley notes.

    Ripe and focused, with anise, apple, quince and green almond notes that stay pure and refreshing through the finish. A plump, inviting Riesling.

    Very forward, with a frankly sweet edge, and pretty apple, fig and lime candy flavors. Nice juicy finish.

    Juicy apple and slate notes, with hints of fig and minerals on the finish. Fuller body than most, with nice length. Drink now.

    Rich yet soft, with apple, anise and lime flavors that linger nicely on the finish. Drink now.
