Critical Acclaim

SP93 Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2022

"Delicious from the start, with a burst of meringue, lemon gelée and Jonagold apple flavors backed by jasmine and honeysuckle accents through the long, pure finish. Drink now through 2032. 800 cases made. (James Molesworth)" (93 pts.)

WE93 Wine Enthusiast 9/1/2022

"Coiled aromas of yuzu, limestone and white blossoms give this dry Riesling an air of pent-up energy on a nose that’s waiting to explode. The medium-bodied palate delivers tense flavors of citrus peels and crushed stone matched by heady field blossoms, all while juicy apple and peach accents peak out their heads. A gentle grip of white tea, along with well-honed acidity, lend structure and length to it all. (Alexander Peartree)" (93 pts.)

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 21st Apr 2022

"The 2020 Riesling HJW Vineyard comes in with six grams of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. This was sourced from HJW vines planted in 1977. This takes the Flower Day Riesling, which is sourced from the younger 2009 vines at HJW, and adds concentration, plus a more unctuous texture while retaining a fairly crisp demeanor relative to what I’m seeing in this group of 2020s. The mouthfeel suggests depth and there are hints of complexity to come. This might be the most nuanced of Wiemer’s wines in this report. Plus, some six hours later, it did a better job of pulling in its parts and showing off its structure. It began to look a bit more like the 2019 and also like one of the nicest winners for Wiemer in 2020, with an excellent chance of improving over the next several years. It will not even be released until the summer of 2022. (Mark Squires)" (94 pts.)

Finger Lakes

Officially established in 1982, the Finger Lakes region has a storied history of wine production in New York State and is recognized the world over. The deep glacially formed lakes offer sublime growing conditions thanks to the sloping hillsides and moderating effect the lakes have on the temperature of the surrounding area.

The main growing regions are centered around Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake (which each have their own AVAs) but quality wine is being made throughout the region. Riesling is the belle of the ball in the Finger Lakes (oftentimes being compared to the Rieslings of Germany) but success has been had with Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and others.

New York

Seeing as our store is located in the midst of New York's wine regions, we have a special affinity for New York wines. And so should you! New York is now producing some of the world's best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, and there are lots of other terrific wines made from grapes like Catawba, Niagara, Cabernet Franc and others being produced here, as well. Every year, the quality, reputation, and demand for New York wines continue to soar. What are you waiting for? Uncork New York!

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
