Lamoreaux Landing Riesling 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A classic Lamoreaux Riesling, full of intense Riesling character with its stunning pear, pineapple and peach flavor profile. A beautifully balanced, slightly sweet wine, it stands very well on its own, but is also very food-friendly. Try with salty foods, especially cheeses and foods with some sweetness, such as fruit. Also good with spicy cuisine.

Mark Wagner founded Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars and has consistently produced award-winnning wines with his own grapes since the 1990 vintage. Mark's family has been in the Seneca Lake grape business since the time of his great grandfather, and since the 1940s has produced vitis labrusca and French-American hybrid grapes for sale to big wine producers like Taylor and Widmer. As the giants began to stumble and estate wineries emerged in the wake of the Farm Winery Act of 1976, Mark took over the family business in 1978 and shifted the emphasis of the family farm to cultivating premium vitis vinifera grapes to supply the budding new wineries. Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars was the logical culmination of generations of grape-growing knowledge and decades of Mark's viticultural experience. The soaring Greek Revival building, which was designed by Ithacan native Bruce Corson, opened on August 30, 1992, and offers visitors unparalleled views of more than 25 miles of water on Seneca Lake. Lamoreaux Landing is aptly named after a 19th century steamboat landing on Seneca Lake, and the pilings from this dock can still be seen below the vineyards down on the lake. However, this connection to the deep waters of Seneca Lake extends way beyond a geographical namesake or signature view. In the winter months, radiant heat from the lake insulates nearby vineyards, protecting the vines even on the coldest days when the air temperature in the region drops below zero degrees Farenheit, which is cold enough to kill delicate European vines like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. The original vineyards are planted on lands recognized as far back as the 1800s as ideal for grape cultivation. Superior soil content, gently sloping hills, unusual prevailing wind patterns, ample sunlight, and proximity to the deep waters of Seneca Lake are all important ingredients that contribute to the production of Lamoreaux Landing's premium estate-bottled wines.

Juicy, with a flattering, off-dry feel to the anise, McIntosh apple and pear notes. Drink now.

Off-dry, but with excellent focus to the fig, Jonagold apple and brioche notes that all push nicely through the medium-weight finish. A twinge of minerality keeps it all fresh and driven. Delicious.

Bitter lime peel and an elegant steeliness give structure to the sweet, fresh apples that dominate this off-dry style Riesling. Bright lemon-lime acidity leads to a mouthwatering pucker on the finish.

Vibrant aromas and flavors of apricots and peaches in this wine are enhanced by just the right balance of sweetness and acidity. This Riesling is the perfect complement for many types of spicy cuisines.

Pale gold color. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Sweet citrus, minerals. Crisp aromas lead a high-toned palate with tingling acidity and a solid minerally backbone. This is well structured and should develop more character with some bottle age.

This leads with a broad, clean scent, accents of caramel and turbinado sugar adorning ripe pear; the flavors are generous and round, with good body, and shored up by bright acidity.
