Wine & Spirits:

"Like many of the best wines of the vintage, this Finger Lakes Riesling seems rich at the outset, in its white peach scent and golden peach flavors. Those flavors, while mouth filling, are conveyed by an energy that takes over the wine and leads to a beguiling spiciness. As intense as it is luxurious, this has impressive length." (08/13)

Product Description:

Wine:
"This Riesling is voluptuous and racy with bright citrus aromas in the nose and a perfectly balanced palate with a luscious sweetness and edgy acidity. This vibrant interplay of sweetness and acidity create a wine that is intriguing and pairs remarkably well with food." - Winery

Vineyard/Vintage Notes:
"Lahoma Vineyards is located across Seneca Lake about three miles from Red Newt Cellars. A long, warm growing season in 2011 yielded plenty of ripe flavors and natural sugar. Bouts of rain at harvest time necessitated diligence in the vineyard as well as special care in the cellars for premium quality fruit. The warmer vintage provided Red Newt Rieslings the opportunity to express warmer vintage characteristics such as honey, baked apricots, and luscious red apples while still retaining their traditional acid backbone. Overall, the 2011 Rieslings show opulence and extraction." - Winery

Producer:
"As a recipient of Wine & Spirits Magazine's 2011 Winery of the Year, the message at Red Newt Cellars is simple: eat local, drink regional. With a collaborative team of winemakers and chefs, it is this combined effort between wine and cuisine that brands Red Newt as an innovative leader in the Finger Lakes region. The focus is not only to craft world-class wines and locally sourced cuisine, but also to create a synergy between them." - Winery

This wine was also rated 89 Points by the Wine Enthusiast and 88 Points by the Wine Spectator.
