Very Mosel in style. Nose has pristine apple with a hint of barely ripe peach. Nice slatey minerality underneath. So pure smelling. Crisp and so balanced in the mouth, with fruit and cracked stones in equipoise. Dry and clean as a whistle on the finish. Nicely done.

Another solid vintage of this consistent FLX Riesling. Minerals, chalk and just a touch of petrol on the nose. Granny Smith apple and a touch of peach (along with those stony mineral notes) on the pallet. Crisp with mouth watering acidity. Very “Mosel-like.” Never disappoints.

My first Riesling from the Finger Lakes. Lemon, grapefruit, and green apple. Slate and minerals on the finish. High acid and very dry. Looking forward to trying more wines from this region.

Nice, mineral based Riesling. Reminiscent of Alsace.

First NY state Riesling, doesn’t show the terroir like Alsace or Germany but very enjoyable. Dry and crisp.
