Winemaker's Notes:

"From vineyards located on the East Side of Seneca Lake, this bright wine has a balance of citrus and tree fruit, with a pointed, rich finish. Pairs with grilled salmon, grilled vegetables or creamy cheeses."- Winery Website

Family owned farm winery, producing Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Vidal Ice, and several bordeaux style red wines. Overlooking historic vineyards, with a delightful tasting room experience. In 1991, we purchased historic vineyards on the east side of Seneca Lake. A long line of venerable vintners spent years researching the quality of these lands. We followed in their footsteps by growing wines in the same historic vineyards that served Gold Seal Vineyards so well in the past. History became our best teacher, for conditions on the rolling hillsides above Seneca Lake proved ideal for growing and harvesting premium grapes and subsequently crafting heavenly wines. In just a few short years, our boutique winery began to make history with a prized selection of award-winning wines. Our wines continue to reap honors and critical acclaim on the wine circuit, but we've only just begun to show our potential. We plan to move into the history of the future, with the great vineyards of the world, bringing much deserved recognition to the new world-class wines of the Finger Lakes. From ripe, richly flavored grapes we produce premium wines - each year making slightly more wine which is better than the preceding vintage. Our first crush, in 1993, yielded only 800 cases, which was quickly discovered and sold out in just 12 short weeks. We now produce about 6500 cases, allowing us to bring wine to you in more locations. We always encourage you to visit the winery, drink in the view, and enjoy the current vintage. Tour our 30 plus acres of vineyards, expanding to 40 acres over the next few years. Learn how we carefully nurture the fruit of the vine through the fall and winter, and into summer, in a way that allows the best features of that fruit to show through in the finished wine. The wines are made and sold in renovated barns. The white wines are made in stainless steel tanks, allowing temperature control of fermentation and cellaring, and the red wines and Chardonnay are made in oak barrels - primarily American Oak. We spend many hours tasting the wines, both to follow their progress, and to assess the blends. We believe that the hands-on, vineyard based approach to our wines results in a superior wine finished in the bottle. You can tour our facility, often including a visit with someone from the winemaking team, and often including samples of the current vintage from barrels or tanks. Read less

This was our Thanksgiving wine and it was splendid. Great pairing for white meat turkey as well as cranberry sauce. Some great wet rock as well as papaya on the finish. I'm sure it would go great with sushi as well.

Underwhelming; bland. Too dry for my preference in a Riesling.

It has the initial sweetness and round mouthfeel you might expect from a reisling, but it quickly goes to a crisp finish. Very refreshing; good wine for summer.

took me a while to get over the region but once i opened the bottle and had my first sip i was pleasantly surprised. it was dry, crisp just right for a nice early spring evening. while not sweet, there is a bit of pineapple and green apple in there. overall a good buy, i will get a couple of more of this one.

The Finger Lakes region is recognized for world class Rieslings, and the Wine Spectator recognizes Standing Stonersquo;s Riesling as one of the best. Ripe apricot fruit, complemented by hints of pear and tropical flavors and floral aromas. With age in the bottle, this Riesling has developed great structure and balance that makes it the perfect accompaniment to a fine meal. Serve this wine with spicy Asian cuisine, or try it with baked ham.

Still very tight, with some CO2 still covering the blanched almond, floral, white peach and mineral notes. Therersquo;s nice crunchy acidity and solid length. Will need modest cellaring to open up fully. Drink now through 2010.

A rounded, forward style, with good fennel and apple notes that are ripe for the vintage but a bit loose-knit on the finish. Drink now.

The aromas of this delightful Riesling have notes of pink grapefruit, nectarine and limes. The palate is enhanced by a bright acidity and flavors of mandarin orange, white peach and lime zest. The wine has immense length and intensity of flavor, with a crisp, clean finish.

Ripe tropical flavors, delicate pear undertones and floral aromas. Perfect for sipping, with crisp acidity to balance the mid-range sweetness. Try with a baked ham, or various oriental dishes.

Ripe, exotic fruits and appealing acidity make this white juicy and irresistible. Big peach, apricot and star fruit flavors lead up to an intense and elegant finish. Simple, straightforward and delicious is the easiest way to describe this wine; try it with cheesecake topped by fresh berries.

While walking around either of the Premier Group stores is it is easy to be seduced by wine from exotic locales from around the world and to overlook the quality wines being produced nearby in Southern Ontario and the Finger Lakes. Standing Stone is one of the new, up-and-coming Finger Lakes wineries, and their 1997 Riesling shows off-dry apricot, peach, and honey flavors balanced by brisk acidity. Enjoy this wine on its own or with oriental or spicy foods.
