Entry-level dry Riesling from two vineyards: White Spring (on the western shore of Seneca Lake) and 16 Falls vineyards (on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake). Fermented in stainless steel. Green apple and citrus (lime) aromas and some floral notes. Refreshing, dry. Lemon and pineapple notes on the palate. Vibrant acidity. Lingering finish. Easy to drink, great value — 2 months ago

Very nice sweet wine (and a fun vineyard to visit) — a month ago
Spectacular Single Vineyard FLX Riesling! Just a hint of petrol on the nose. Also loaded with fruit forward aromas and flavors of ripe yellow apple, peach and tropical fruits. Additional hints of white flowers, herbal tea and fennel frawns. Full, round and unctuous. Waxy texture and a beautiful acidic grip. Nice dry finish. So full of fruit on the front and mid-pallet it may seem sweet to some. Simply excellent! — 2 months ago
