2017 Red Newt Cellars "Circle" Riesling, Finger Lakes N.Y"
New York. New York! The Finger Lakes. What a place to visit and such an historic place for Northeastern wine. Debrah and David Whiting are OG's in the scene of wine in the Finger Lakes dating back to 1998. They are both activist in the wine game, the culinary scene and cheerleaders for the wine region that makes up the finger lakes. This "Circle" Riesling shows forward fruit of tangerine and apricot with overtones of citrus and honeysuckle. Crisp and slighly sweet, it shows classic Finger Lakes style and sense of place.
