Winemaker Notes

#48 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2018

This Hermann J. Wiemer signature Riesling is vibrant and aromatic, featuring the distinctive minerality that has become our trademark. Fragrant essence of spring blossoms sets the stage for a succulent palate of early fruit, balanced with a refreshing crispness, revealing the true qualities of the Riesling grape. A brilliant texture carries into a lingering finish, in a wine that accommodates a wide range of food.

Pair with asian cuisine, poultry, shellfish.

James Suckling

This is very aromatic, with crushed stone and slate, lime and lemon. Full-bodied, dry and fruity with peach, lime and orange flavors. Extremely long and flavorful. So delicious. Drink now.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
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.

Wine Enthusiast
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.
Editors' Choice
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Dry Riesling 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. 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. This is by no means the best of Wiemer’s Rieslings in this issue, but it is quite possibly the best bargain. Everyone will like it, and it will age well too.

Hermann Wiemer was born in Bernkastel, Germany into a family with 300 years experience in making the distinguished vinifera wines of the Mosel Valley. He arrived in the United States in 1968 already well versed in the European tradition of fine winemaking. To this heritage he added the skill of grafting fragile vinifera vines onto sturdy American rootstock.

In 1973 he bought 140 acres on the west side of Seneca Lake, which he planted with a variety of European vinifera grapevines. Visitors who wish to see these vines, along with ponds and the six acre nursery, can take the popular Vineyard Walk through the property.

The Winery, which produces 12,000 cases each year, was designed in 1982 by an award winning team of Cornell architects. Enclosed within the shell of a seventy-year-old scissor-trussed barn, it accommodates a laboratory, tasting and retail sales, a wine production area and a private tasting room. Its unique white cathedral-like interior counterpoints the bare wooden walls and sleek Italian stainless steel tanks.
