Easy drinking Riesling, on the dry side yet sugars to satisfy on a hot summer day. Tart green apple and pear notes predominate.

Back-labeled as off-dry, this entry-level white delivers for the price. Its sharply etched Key Lime scent suggests a wine that's light and dry, but the mouthwatering attack is considerably richer, fresh apples and pear giving way to a crisp, lees-inflected finish. It's dry enough to serve as an aperitif, but has the weight for Thai basil chicken.

Round and easy, with an off-dry edge to the pear and green apple notes, backed by a twinge of kiwifruit that adds some nice snap to the finish.



Tasting Notes:

You will find this Red Newt label exclusively on Finger Lakes Riesling. The wine in the bottle shows off a classic Finger Lakes style, expressing bright aromas of tangerine and honeysuckle and an elegant palate of citrus and peach. The wine - and the price - are great, and represent one of the best value Rieslings in North America.
