This feels both complete and composed in its array of flavors and aromas—a whiff of white peach, a hint of saffron, a pinch of bruised pineapple, a maple-sugar bass note. The texture is similarly diverse, rich at first, then slimming into a crisp finish. It has the tension and the drive for pork loin.
Ripe stone fruit, rose and wet stone aromas show intensely on the nose. There's great presence to the medium-bodied palate, which boasts ripe, juicy flavors of apple skins and peach. A delightfully astringent mouthfeel is highlighted by white tea tannins on the lingering finish. *Ranked #48 in Top 100 Wines of 2018. Editors' Choice* (AP)
The 2016 Dry Riesling still has nine grams per liter of residual sugar, but this is the Finger Lakes, meaning it still shows dry—but it is fruity and nowhere near austere. Sourced roughly evenly from the winery's key terroirs of HJW, Josef and Magdalena (a little heavier on the HJW), this is round, ripe and delicious, with classic flavors and aromas and just a touch of sugar on the end. It's a terrific "everyday" Riesling in price, but in quality it easily exceeds that description. The sugary nuances will blow off as this ages, and it will begin to seem drier. Indeed, I recorked it and retasted it some six hours later. The fruity burst was more moderate, and it was respectably dry, although clearly less so in perception than the Dry Reserve or the Riesling Bio. The next day, it was far more gripping, showing its structure as well as its concentration and personality. As it began to seem drier, it showed more tension too. This is by no means the best of Wiemer's Rieslings this issue, but it is quite possibly the best bargain. Everyone will like it, and it will age well too. Drink Date: 2018-2028 (MS)
