Riesling-obsessed connoisseurs know how important Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard's pioneering work is to wine. Hermann, born in Germany with an extensive wine family background, discovered the Finger Lakes in the 1960's, and its cool climate and gravelly soil reminded him of the Mosel Valley. Realizing the untapped potential of the Finger Lakes region, he started to grow classic European vines along selected sites on one of the most prominent properties in the Finger Lakes. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard estate grown wines are established from traditions of excellence and have a reputation for being exceptionally lush, crisp and well balanced. Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard is founded on the philosophy of quality and hand crafted wines. Located on the shores of Seneca Lake, the well drained sloping shalestone bedrock and Honeoye silt loam soil lend itself to the production of what critics consider to be some of the best grown Rieslings in America.

Fresh and pure, with tangy slate, pear and green apple notes that stay focused through the brisk, lively finish.

High-toned and minerally at the outset, this dry white gains passion fruit and citrus accents with air; after a day, white peach scents emerge. In its youth it comes off as a bit backward, but it has all the elements for development in the cellar — especially the sleek, slate-inflected finish.

Rather open-knit already, offering a rounded feel to the lemon curd, yellow apple and melon rind notes, with a flash of chamomile on the finish. Shows solid varietal character. Plump and ready to drink. Drink now.

Lean and beautifully composed, with a thrilling back note of minerality, this stylish dry riesling leads with the scent of fresh-picked golden apples and a hint of brown sugar. Its flavors take on a subtle minty herbal note, giving the wine freshness and lift. Beautifully composed, with a fine, brisk texture and a complex and elegant finish.

Smoke, honey and delicate white flowers meld luxuriously on this not-quite-dry beauty. Sweet white grapefruit juice flavors are intensely concentrated on the palate, highlighted by a shower of lime zest and a stony minerality on the finish.
