McGregor Vineyards

Dry Riesling 2002

Bottle from dinner this evening in downtown Hammondsport, a quiet town. The restaurant had a deep list of early 2000's bottles from local wineries, all great values!

Color was deep gold, clearly showing its age.
Nose had oxidized white flowers, and ripe oxidized peach, some wet slate/petrol-light notes.
Palate was candied peach/pineapple, honey.
A great experience, $55 on the list.

Yes, there was a very wide offer of bottles on the list between here and $75, many around this age too. Awesome to be able to try well cellared FLX stuff for short $.

Nice winery. Visited there in the mid-90s with a toddler and baby in tow!

Wrattonbully Shiraz Malbec 2015

100% Shiraz for 2015 due to frost wiping out the Malbec crop.
Medium bodied and at the risk of sounding like a broken record textured!

Petrol on limestone... Better as it warms.

Gift from our host, the winemaker, as we enjoy their guest farmhouse in the Finger Lakes for the next few days.

Finger Lakes Pinot Noir 2015

I feel that this is probably the best Pinot Noir producer out of the finger lakes although the competition is finally a good one. The nose has a wonderful aroma of currant a plum with undertones of spice including nutmeg and mulling spices. The palate is gorgeously light and elegant but still somewhat juicy at the same time. Flavors of plum, sour cherry and baking spice along with wonderfully balance acidity. The finish is soft and elegant with juicy fruit notes of lingering acidity. Wow... a great pairing for roasted pork. — 3 days ago
