Dry New York Riesling by Empire Estate | 2017
Empire Estate showcases America's greatest Riesling region — the Finger Lakes! A 4-hour drive northwest of New York City, 11 deep, finger-shape lakes are a cold climate haven for Riesling. The wines have a precise attack of friendly fruit and ice-cold mineral on the palate, reminiscent of the great Dry Rieslings from the Saar or Mosel (of Germany.) With tight curls of lemon, green apple, and a starbust of tropical fruits, pair this wine with anything crunchy, salty, or creamy. Fried Chicken anyone?
