2007 Dry Riesling - Reserve
This Riesling is dry and firm with complex aromas of orange peel and apricot. Lean and focused, it expresses an elegant combination of fruit and minerality that will pair well with a wide range of foods. This Reserve bottling has captured the quintessential personality of Finger Lakes Riesling.
Riesling production at Red Newt Cellars is straightforward and elegant. Fermentation is in stainless steel, mostly with Epernay II yeast at moderate temperatures. The Reserve Riesling is a selection of the best vineyards and fermentation lots which are assembled as a wine that is lean, with crisp acidity and focused fruit. These wines are age-worthy, and show best after at least 2-3 years in the bottle.
The 2007 vintage was one of the warmer, riper vintages of the decade. Riesling wines from this vintage show more ripe, opulent fruit and less and less laser like acidity than we find in Rieslings from more typically cool vintages in the Finger Lakes.
