Wine Review: This straw colored Riesling from Hermann Wiemer is exceptionally good. It opens with a fragrant and attractive fennel and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious ripe Bosc pear and pineapple blend with nicely integrated minerality, lemon and a hint of ginger. The finish is dry and its ripe fruit flavors fade away nicely. This Riesling is very food friendly and would pair well with swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The unique traits of our Magdalena Vineyard are featured in this lush Riesling. A beneficial air exchange with Seneca Lake moderates the temperatures, creating a warmer and more protective site in the colder months and a cooling effect throughout the summer. The airflow keeps the vineyard dry, and deep soil provides room for spreading root growth. The lime silt loam soil that the site is celebrated for is crucial to the development of flavor intensity in the grapes. The resulting ripeness greets you in the nose with an intense, floral bouquet. This gives way to a fruit-driven, mouth-coating freshness that lingers for minutes after the first sip. Magdalena wines are striking and powerful, and develop very well over time– whether in the glass or in the cellar.
