Riesling from Finger Lakes - a world-class wine producing region in America!
The unique traits of the Magdalena Vineyard are featured in this lush Riesling. A beneficial air exchange with Seneca Lake moderates the temperatures, creating a warmer and more protective site in the colder months and a cooling effect throughout the summer. The airflow keeps the vineyard dry, and deep soil provides room for spreading root growth. The lime silt loam soil that the site is celebrated for is crucial to the development of flavor intensity in the grapes. The resulting ripeness greets you in the nose with an intense, floral bouquet. This gives way to a fruit-driven, mouth-coating freshness that lingers for minutes after the first sip. Magdalena wines are striking and powerful, and develop very well over time– whether in the glass or in the cellar. Critical Acclaim
As usual, the dry Riesling from Magdalena is Wiemer's most powerful dry riesling with more stone-fruit aromas alongside the floral and lemon notes, and although the wine is rich and mouth-filling, there's more than enough acidity and mineral freshness to make this as subtle as it is delicious. Another Wiemer wine with great ageing potential!
