Winemaker Notes

The 2020 season was very hot and dry, which allowed winemakers to harvest fruit at a level of ripeness that guarantees a complex flavor profile in a dry Riesling. The result in this wine is a combination of exceptional fruit flavor with crisp, bracing acidity, which supplies this dry Riesling with verve and liveliness.

Critical Acclaim

A rich dry riesling for the Finger Lakes that displays the tropical side of the warm 2020 vintage. Full mango, papaya and apricot aromas, plus considerable succulence on the expansive front and mid-palate make this easy to enjoy. Then it turns much cooler at the long, structured finish. Drink or hold

The 2020 Dry Riesling No. 239 comes in with five grams of residual sugar, 7.8 of total acidity and 13.1% alcohol. This is quite a performance, often stunning. Showing superb concentration, this adds power and a long finish. There's plenty of tension, and the acidity slices through the fruit without the wine ever becoming shrill. It always emphasizes its fruit, but that fruit is always perfectly supported by the brilliant structure. It will need a food pairing to show its best. The only real question here is how much it might improve if you have the patience to cellar it for a few years. If it gets no better, it is still super. For the moment, it looks like one of the finest bargains in this report, which is full of them. Rating: 92+
