Tasting Notes

The key to a good Riesling is finding the balance between delicate minerality and racy acidity. This wine certainly achieves that. It also offers an intensely aromatic nose of licorice wrapped around orange blossom flowers, perfumed ever so and peppered with zesty spice, wet stone minerals, and white peach. Drinking this wine by itself is quite enjoyable, but it can also be paired with spice-grilled pork, goat cheese, and spinach salads.

Staff Pick Notes

The small operation at Keuka Lake vineyards is turning out some serious wines, case in point their Eastside Rielsing. The acidity is precise and perfectly in balance with the ripe peach and orange blossom notes. A truly beautiful and expertly crafted wine. This varietal already has an impressive reputation in the Finger Lakes region and thrives in the cool climate with protection from the depth of Keuka Lake. Terroir is the driving force behind the winemaking at KLV and the winemaker encourages experimentation as much as crafting pristine single vineyard stunners. A must try for fans of local wine and for riesling lovers.
