16 Intriguing Finger Lakes Rieslings, 10/20/16
Riesling STV Estate Vineyard 2015–90 points–Shows a lovely mix of jasmine, yellow apple and melon rind flavors, carried by taut acidity through the slate-tinged finish. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2020.
Riesling Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard 2015–89 points–Enticing, with pure pippin apple, Key lime and verbena notes, offset by a dry edge that gives this a porcelainlike feel through the finish. Drink now through 2019.
Riesling Doyle Fournier Vineyard 2015–89 points–Crunchy acidity gives this a lively feel, while lime zest, kiwifruit and green apple notes spring through. Stays high-pitched through the fresh finish. Drink now through 2019.
