Staff Pick Notes

In many respects, art and wine are one and the same as men & women illustrate their thoughts, emotions, and ideals on a palette with spectrums of color, tones, shades and styles. Sometimes easel, sometimes bottle; at times reflective, contemplative, surreal or expressive as this label is. Bloomer Creek is one of New York’s few wineries with natural practices. Their Tanzen Dame line, which translates to Dance, Lady in German, was created to celebrate German, Austrian and Alsatian winemaking. A blend of 50% Cayuga White (a Finger Lakes specialty), 45% Riesling and 5% Gewurztraminer, this carries aromas of gooseberry, tart green apple and lychee. Crisp and dry with flavors of lime zest, morning dew, lemongrass along with racy acidity, this is trocken raw and unhindered.

Riesling

Though the trend is now in the other direction, for many years Riesling was known for producing wines with little alcohol and some residual sugar - too sweet for many modern wine drinkers. Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...

Gewürztraminer

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates,...
