Wiemer Riesling Dry Finger Lake New York 2011
"Hints of lime and orange blossom on the nose set the stage for a succulent palate of apricot and grapefruit. Our trademark minerality creates a beautiful texture that carries into a long, lingering finish." Winemaker's notes "The label says “Dry Riesling,” but in fact it’s slightly sweet, like an old-school German kabinett riesling from the days before global warming. Nonetheless, it’s superb, with deep, three-dimensional flavors, tangy and lightly fruity." New York Times 8/16/12
External Reviews for Wiemer Riesling Dry Finger Lake New York
Floral aromas abound intermingled with hints of tropical fruits. The entry is loaded with apples and pears; mid-palate opens up with floral hints. The finish is all citrus: clementines Valencia oranges grapefruit and tangerines. A pleasant memory of the wine lingers. Another awesome offer from HJW.
Crisply mineral with hints of lime and citrus on the nose. Well balanced with hints of honeyed grapefruit on the palate.
A dry Riesling with a crisp minerality and hints of lime and delicate citrus on the nose. Nicely balanced with a touch of honeyed grapefruit on the palate with a clean finish. - Winery
A tremendous performance, this riesling exhibits a tension between the round, warm peach accents and a darker herbal presence. While the fruit is exuberant, conveyed by a turbinado sugar sweetness, somehow a fierce minerality reins it in. The wine becomes elegant, with a heady, peach-inflected finish that lasts far beyond the sweetness.
Ripe, with creamed Jonagold apple, dried quince and anise flavors laced with heather and orange blossom notes. Displays excellent range and a juicy feel. A slightly forward style overall. Drink now through 2015.
Fresh and engaging, with apple, pine, fennel and green melon notes leading to a crunchy, lively edge on the finish. Drink now through 2014.
