2011 Dry Riesling
Riesling is the flagship wine grape variety of the Finger Lakes, and when produced in this gently dry style is both refreshing and satisfying. Crisp and aromatic in the glass, experience waves of pink grapefruit, key lime, and ripe pineapple. Finger Lakes Riesling pairs easily with fruits, cheeses, salads, poultry, and seafood, or all by itself. Enjoy Red Newt Dry Riesling today, or for years to come as it develops an elegant bottle age.
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.
2009 Vintage - Wine Spectator - 87 points
Tangy, with mouthwatering green apple and fennel notes that give way to hints of pear and green almond at the end.
Tight now, but with an off-dry hint lurking on the finish. Should stretch out. Drink now through 2011. (WS - James Molesworth, 2009)
RS 1.3% ~ TA 7.9 g/l ~ pH 3.15 ~ Alc. 10.2%
