Acidic and a bit hot. Would go well with something salty, like crackers.

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.

Smells of lime on the nose, sweet but not overly. A bit syrupy in the mouth. A bit of sweet sour apple lollipop flavor.

Pours a bright clear light golden color. Nice aromas of light fruit such as apricots/peaches/apples. Starts off with a nice amount of green apple and peaches. In the middle, more of the same with some citrus undertones. Finishes with more peaches and apples. Has a light body that leaves a light fruit taste on the palate.

Soft with some fruits, not a lot of minerality. Acidic finish. Tasted at the winery.

It makes me incredibly happy to find a dry Riesling of this quality, at this price mdash; and best of all, itrsquo;s from New York! Aromas of peach, candied orange, and green apple lead the way, supported by an herbaceous undertone. The refreshing acidity holds everything together on the palate, as the wine finishes with touches of minerals and nutmeg. Lamoreaux Landing is quickly becoming one of my favorite wineries in the Finger Lakes mdash; from their single-vineyard Rieslings to their Cabernet Francs to their dessert wines, there is an emphasis on terroir which promises an even greater future for the region.

A classic medium-bodied Finger Lakes Riesling with floral aromas and balanced acidity accompanied by blended flavors of peach and nectarine. It has a long, clean and pleasant finish.

Lively and well-knit, this refreshing white offers bright lime, mineral and almond flavors on a firm frame. It's fruity but dry; the finish is clean and lingers nicely. Drink now.

Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars is on the eastern slopes of Seneca Lake in Lodi, New York, an excellent location for growing Riesling grapes. This resplendent yet restrained wine has fruit balanced by crisp acidity. It would be delightful with poached sole.

Generous aromas of mango and lime give way to a more austere palate and steely acidity. It's clean and refreshing.

An ethereal riesling from estate vineyards on Seneca Lake, this 2008 has aromas of lemon and passionfruit. Its flavors are leesy and firm, with a mineral texture like fine sand; the finish strays into lemon curd and other, deeper citrus elements, like Mandarin orange. A phenomenal value, and an ideal pairing for smoked trout.

Melon and jasmine aromas abound in this light, refreshing Riesling offering glimpses of white peach, lime and slate on the palate. A hint of bitter almond adds complexity to the finish.
