Chris from Bellwether Wine Cellars was kind enough to send us some samples from the Finger Lakes of New York. As American Riesling lovers, we always enjoy the chance to educate ourselves about the great work people are doing out East. While we’re quite fond of Oregon Riesling, we accept that New York has the world’s eye when talking about Riesling from the USA. While we drink a lot of German Riesling, tasting new world Riesling gives us a chance to expand our understanding of Riesling’s expression of terroir, and range of expression. In this show, we taste the 2012 A&D Vineyard Wild Ferment, the 2012 Sawmill Creek Vineyard Riesling, and the 2012 Sawmill Creek Pinot Noir.
