Nose has dried orange, light petrol, very over ripe peach, orange zest, nectarine and faint vinyl.
Palate has sweet dried peach slice, candied pineapple, ripe nectarine, lemon zest with a medium+ finish. Really starting to develop nicely...and of course, our last bottle on the vintage.
Generally these should hold a minimum of +10Y.
(We do have some other older vintages we're waiting out.) What a fantastic wine tonight!
Paired to sweet chilli chicken thighs (Dorie Greenspan, an absolute favorite cookbook author) to really cut the sweet heat of the dish. This halbtrocken Finger Lakes Riesling was a perfect match! — 11 days ago
Lemon in color with a green tint.
Strong nose of citrus, green and red apples, spices, light pineapples, lemons and light grapefruits.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with limes, lemons, apples and grapefruit juice.
Tangy finish with spices and limes.
This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc from Arizona. Nicely balanced with nice complexity. Fruit forward, refreshing and rich.
I had the 2019 vintage sometime earlier this year. This 2020 vintage is much better for me.
Good by itself as a sipping wine. I had it with cheeses and crackers by the lake.

Nice job for a tough year. This is a blue collar Riesling. Dark brass color, earthy nose, with loads of petrol-like minerality and lots of dried apricot. Intense and relatively weighty in the mouth, it packs a good initial wallop of minerality, with a bit of fruit, in a bone dry framework. Good acids. Persistence on the finish is lacking a bit, but otherwise lots of character.I agree with a prior tasting note I saw that this — surprisingly for a young wine — tastes like a well-aged Spatlese Trocken. — 19 days ago
Another solid vintage of this consistently excellent New England bubbly! Intense Aromas and flavors of baked apples with hints of grapefruit and vanilla. Dark gold color. Beautiful mousse and consistent tiny bubbles with pallet cleansing acidity. Buttery/creamy texture. So well made. Thank You, John P. — 7 days ago
One of my favorite Finger Lakes Rieslings! Modest gold color. Subtle petrol on the nose. Medium plus depth and nice balance between sweetness and tartness. Could use some more zip but my guess is that it is just past prime drinking age. Awesome QPR. — 5 days ago
Nose: distinctly floral. Mild orange peel. Green apple (but the smell of a green apple, not the taste.). Honey. Taste: Tastes about like it smells, gently floral with honey and mild citrus, some darker berry-like fruit (unusual for a white wine!), pomegranate (?), medium dry as described. Good stuff. 89. — 7 days ago
Gruet Méthode Champenoise Gold Label Brut: Light & dry. Refreshing & fruity. Perfect tiny bubbles! Yeasty nose with flavor notes of green apple, pear, citrus, minerals & toast. Extremely clean finish. This is a delicious sparkling wine and a solid value selection. Go ahead & give this New Mexico gem a try! Make it a great day! Cheers🥂 — a month ago
