Wine Review: This dark yellow colored "Dry Riesling" from the Finger Lakes opens with a very fragrant ripe Golden Delicious apple bouquet with a hint of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, mouthwatering and round. The flavor profile is tasty mild mineral infused ripe Bosc pear and Granny Smith apple blend with notes of juicy white peach and a dash of white pepper. The finish is off-dry and its ripe flavors drift away nicely. This Riesling is impressive. I would enjoy it with a wild mushroom risotto. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The finest qualities of the estate are expressed in our Reserve Dry Riesling, an exclusive wine spotlighting unique characteristics from all three of our vineyard sites. A brilliant, tangy nose heralds a burst of stone fruit and citrus zest on the palate. Fruit and minerality play into a lingering finish that continues to make the mouth water long after the wine is gone. Pair with Asian cuisine, chicken or pork.
