Finger Lakes, New York

Hermann J. Wiemer

Single Select Riesling 2016

This single select Riesling was actually selected by the nature. With noble rot all over the grapes from a small parcel of the one and only Josef vineyard, the wine offers a very pronounced nose: dried marmalade peel, honeysuckle, raisin and dried apricot. On the palate it feels special: mouth coating sweetness balanced by its great acidity. Totally rounded and pristine, yet the length is quite long from the front to the back. After taste brings candied pear and dried dates. So dense yet pure, so flavorful yet concentrated. This wine is a nexus of complicity and simplicity - a singularity. Personally hope it can be fermented a little bit longer. — 19 days ago

Finger Lakes Lemberger 2015

2015, what a smooth year! Nice, soothing on the nose, so you know that follows has to be a reward! Tannins present but sedate, finish powerful and lasting. — 11 days ago

Finger Lakes Merlot 2016

Characteristics of baking spices and honey with citrus undertones. I enjoyed with a slightly spiced vegetable curry and it paired beautifully — 13 days ago

@Arden Barnett : Not that I’ve seen, but if you find any, let me know. Some of their rieslings score quite well. A buddy of mine at Classic has a small stash and will bust one out from time to time. If you ever make your way there, let me know and maybe we can open one.

Nathan K. Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2015

Seriously good Chardonnay from an unlikely AVA. The Finger Lakes can be very hit and miss, but sometimes you find gems like this. Restrained and balanced, with a very subtle aroma of pineapples. It has some weight to it, but also firm acidity. There’s probably some oak at play, but it’s very much in the background. And at only 12% ABV you can have a couple glasses, too. — 18 days ago
