    Wine Enthusiast lauds as "The break-out producer of the Finger Lakes ".  The winery says "This might be the best wine we have ever made".  We say have at it!

    Wine Enthusiast: "Honeysuckle and orange blossoms perfume this bright, ebullient wine full of ripe grapefruit and pineapple flavors. While dry in style, it juxtaposes a lusciously rich, penetrating palate against a pulsating backbone of lemon-line acidity. It's pristine yet powerful through a long, undulating finish." Mar 2016

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "Though the nose is a touch reserved, this wine comes alive on the palate with an intoxicating concentration of flavor. Upon some inspection, the bouquet reveals aromas of lemon juice, sea air, golden kiwi, and flint. The palate is somehow both expressive and tight at the same time—though it clearly possesses a big personality, one gets the impression that it could further blossom with some bottle age. The acidity is striking and quite fine, chiseling through the taut, citric fruit core. The finish is endless and quite chalky. A combination of the 2013’s nose with this palate would result in my ultimate fantasy Riesling. A wine for the cellar. 8 grams per liter of residual sugar."

    Winery: "We made this wine from very ripe fruit harvested in late October. You will find explosive flavors and bracing acidity in this Dry Riesling. This might be the best wine we have ever made. It is a Dry Riesling, but it is full of ripe, luscious flavors and yet still carries sufficient acidity to keep it fresh. In the Finger Lakes, 2014 was an exceptional year. The autumn was very warm and dry, which allowed us to keep our fruit out longer than is typical. This allowed the fruit to achieve a clean, ripe stage that is rarely seen. You must try this wine to experience something brand new from the Finger Lakes."
