Wine reviewer Mark Squires covers the Finger Lakes Region for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and just published an article titled “USA, East Coast: The Finger Lakes – America’s Best Wine Region Beyond the West Coast.” Mark visited the winery earlier this spring. We had some wonderful conversation and it’s clear from these scores, he enjoyed the wines too.
In particular, the Wine Advocate had high praise for our 2017 Semi-Dry Riesling:
"The 2017 Semi-Dry Riesling has 20 grams per liter of residual sugar, 8.1 of total acidity and 12.1% alcohol. This is actually drier than the Riesling just called "Riesling." It handles the sugar brilliantly, the acidity slicing and dicing it. It can easily still be a table wine. There might be a hint of petrol in the background, but a slight hint. This has depth, power and impeccable balance. Right at the moment, this is rather stunning for the price point. Hopefully, it evolves well too. There are over 345 cases available—it's a productive vintage. You might want your name on one. It will hold well and there will be no rush to drink it."
Here are the scores from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Issue 243 | End of June
