Boy am I lucky. I went into the wine cellar looking for a Riesling in honor of May – Riesling Month, and I found a Riesling bottle that had in marker Whitecliff 2007. No label, just marker. (hence no picture)

The 2007 growing season was the best ever in the Hudson Valley and in all of New York State. I had high expectations on opening this wine. I wasn’t let down. This is an estate grown riesling.

This wine was a beautiful rich yellow. On the nose it had honeydew melon. On the taste it had hints of pineapple. On the finish it had a soft spice on the roof of your mouth followed by a soft acidic finish.

This was a wonderful Riesling. Unfortunately, I checked the Whitecliff website as I am writing this blog and it’s sold out, but it sold for $15.95.
