From the bottle:
“The classic Riesling grape consistently makes outstanding wines in the cool climate of the Finger Lakes Region of New York. With elegant floral aromas and a clean crisp finish, this drier style of Riesling is versatile with many foods. Try it with shellfish appetizers, poultry or even Chinese dishes.
We’re big fans of Riesling from the Finger Lakes here at The Reverse Wine Snob and today we’re featuring one from one of the largest and most award winning wineries in the region, Swedish Hill Winery.
The 2012 Swedish Hill Winery Dry Riesling (2011 vintage pictured) begins with aromas of pear, green apple and lots of lovely floral notes. The wine tastes really delicious with more green apple and pear flavors as well as lime and a touch of tropical fruit. It’s just sweet enough with plenty of fruit, a nice lively texture and good acidity. This one should pair quite easily with lots of different foods. Another fantastic Finger Lakes Riesling!
Overall Rating: 7.8
