Winemaker Notes

This Riesling is voluptuous and racy with bright citrus aromas in the nose, a perfectly balanced palate with a luscious sweetness and edgy acidity, and a lingering finish. The Knoll Riesling captures the quintessential personality of Finger Lakes Riesling.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

Freshly poured the nose of grapefruit and smoke is rather like that of Red Newt's regular dry riesling of this vintage. Yet then the passion fruit, pineapple, mangoes and lemon balm come through making it so much more complex. This extremely concentrated wine manages to be as powerful as it is finely nuanced from the surge of ripe fruit at the front to the diamond-bright finish that seems to vibrate on your tongue. Not yet released. Should be at its youthful best 2018-20, but this can age way longer than that.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Sourced from a vineyard on the west side of Seneca Lake, this semidry wine offers sunny aromas of canned peach, yellow blossoms and saffron on the nose. The medium-bodied palate is luscious and creamy in feel, with a grip of dried apricot rind and focused acidity providing a fine counterbalance. It offers excellent concentration, depth and balance.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Riesling The Knoll - Lahoma Vineyards is from Seneca Lake, with four grams of residual sugar, 7.5 of total acidity and 13.2% alcohol. When last seen, this looked pretty fine, this being only the third vintage of this bottling. Lively and bright, this has a touch of the grapefruit that I saw on the Tango Oaks, but here it is a more minor nuance (or, nuisance, depending on your view). Expressive, a little delicate, but surprisingly persistent, this young Riesling is on track to develop and age well. It has the structure and the concentration.

As the most historic wine-producing region in New York state, winemaking in the Finger Lakes area dates back to the 1820s and today as a region, accounts for 90% of the state’s total wine production.

Its narrow and deep lakes created by the movement of Ice Age glaciers create an environment similar to the classic Riesling-loving regions of Europe, namely Germany and Austria. The Finger Lakes retain summer heat that incidentally warms up cold winter air, making it fall down from the lakes’ steep slopes. When spring comes, the lakes, already cooled by cold winter weather, stave off vine budding until the danger of frost has subsided. The main lakes of the zone, that is those big enough to moderate the climate in this way, are the focal points of prime vineyard areas. They include Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga.

While Riesling has fueled most of the region’s success, today Pinot noir and Cabernet Franc enjoy some attention.
