I thought I would finish off Regional Wine Week with a Finger Lakes Riesling. This wine was a gift from my friend Melissa who we met for an afternoon of wine tasting in the Finger Lakes this past summer. What a wonderful selection it was! Thank you Melissa!
WOW! is what I said after the first smell of this wine. A nose full of citrus zest – tangerine peel and lime zest. Once me and the wine settled down there were hints of apricot and apple that showed through.
A simple sip brought tart green apples, apricot to the mid taste. Hints of minerality dance in your mouth. This wine has a beautiful mouth feel and is smooth, silky and not very acidic. It finishes off with a nice citrus zing.
If you are a Riesling fan, I highly recommend this wine. I really enjoyed this bottle!
