Four Degrees of Riesling

Where It's From

District / Finger Lakes

View more wines from 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.

Region / 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!

Country / United States

View more wines from 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.

RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th May 2022
The 2021 Dry Riesling, colloquially known as the “classic” dry Riesling, comes in with only half a gram of residual sugar and 8.34 of total acidity, plus 10.58% alcohol. That’s a pretty crisp wine on paper and in fact. Winemaker Jordan Harris said that beginning with the 2020 vintage, “a lot of our wines have started a little shift stylistically… So, the dry is aimed at being truly dry. Will there be years where the acid level means stopping with a couple grams, maybe, but that hasn’t been the case for a couple years.” In bottle about six weeks when seen, this didn’t seem to show any bottle shock, but it sure was unevolved. That’s not going to be a problem that is fixed in a few more weeks. Rather, I’d say this could use a year or two in the bottle. There are plenty of sharp edges here and there is very little relief from them, as neither the sugar nor the fruit balances the acidity at this juncture. That was true even after I let it air out and warm up a bit. That said, I still rather liked this, and it may well develop favorably. If you open it now (and probably well into the future), it is the type of wine that requires a food pairing. It won’t do well on its own. In terms of aging and evaluation, let’s be a little conservative just now. It has some questions to answer. Put it away until next year, at least. (Mark Squires)

Very sleek, but graceful, with lovely delicacy. Lemon and lime-zest freshness, as well as nice apricot fruit and delicate floral notes. Long, filigree finish with moderate acidity in the 2021 context. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)

The 2021 Riesling HJW Vineyard comes in with six grams of residual sugar and 12.4% alcohol. A small (12%) part of the juice was aged for seven months in new, large-format Austrian foudres (2,000 liters). This was sourced from HJW vines planted in 1977 and 1978. It is the only one of the single vineyards bottled in this rainy vintage where the others were declassified. I expected that this would show well since it was the only one here of the typical single-vineyard wines from older vines. It will not be a monument to greatness in the winery’s long history, but it is very good and hardly a slacker. Moderately expressive and mostly open, even in its youth, it has a fresh feel and a friendly finish. It’s not particularly intense, but it lingers nicely and tastes great in a relatively dry-but-not-lean presentation. With aeration, the structure comes out to play and proves that this does also have some support for the fruit. It will age relatively well. (Mark Squires)

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 3, 2023
Remarkably ripe nose of peach, apricot and orange blossom nose for the challenging vintage. The elegance on the medium-bodied palate is also striking in this context, the balance of mineral acidity, stone fruit character and a hint of natural grape sweetness is spot on. Wet stone minerality at the long, very clean finish. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2023
Lifted layers of bright aromas from lemon peel, tangerine and honeycomb, to flint and herbs, offer a level of both complexity and crowd appeal. Tangy acidity on the palate neatly balances texture and fruit weight. Restrained but with focus and harmony, this could age for another seven to eight years but is also food-friendly drinking now. A far stronger bottling than its counterpart, No. 90. (Christina Pickard)

Crackles nicely with pippin apple, lime and slate notes. Reveals flashes of yellow apple and chamomile on the finish, with the slate edge lingering nicely. Drink now through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,500 cases made. (James Molesworth)
