A great example of a more sheltered, slightly warmer site on Lake Seneca, the Hermann J. Wiemer Magdalena Vineyard Riesling is rounder and fleshier as compared with other estate parcels. Pronounced aromas drenched in forest honey, apricots, white flowers and baking spice waft from the glass. On the palate, its quite lush, with mouth-coating glycerine, stone fruit and an engraved acid backbone that seems typical of Finger Lakes wine. A suggestion of minerality ushers this wine to a lingering close. 12.5% ABV

A touch of body, rich tropical fruit notes, really tasty. A little more acidity would be nice, but that actually improved with time in the glass and left me wanting more. Paired really well with some empanadas and hot sauce.

Honey and melon. Long finish with med plus body and acidity. Damn good showing.

Warmest of the single vineyards. Corners are rounded, fruit is riper, RS a smidge higher. Beautifully balanced.
