Summary: Riesling is a grape that offers a little something for everyone. Racy acidity, slight sweetness, minerality, and loaded with juicy fruit aromas. Originally hailing from the cool wine growing regions of Germany, one of the best places to grow riesling in the New World is the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York. The glacial soil provides ample minerality, while the deep waters of the Finger Lakes provide cool nights during the summer to maintain the crisp acidity.
The pale straw color gleams in the glass while the nose is greeted with a bouquet of lime, melon, rhubarb, green apple, honeysuckle, & floral aromas. The palate is teased with a broad lingering finish with tingling acidity that perfectly balances the off dry sweetness.
