External Reviews for Red Newt Cellars Riesling Finger Lakes Circle Label Medium Sweet
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.
Red Newt Cellars is a small winery on the south east shore of Seneca Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Winemaker David Whiting and Chef Debra Whiting founded the winery and bistro in 1998. Riesling has always been a passion.
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.
