Wine Advocate--90 pts.--"My tendency in the Finger Lakes is to prefer the Dry Rieslings, but this handles its sugar beautifully, while remaining fresh and lively.  It shows good concentration and some tension on the finish.  It’s a sure-fire crowd-pleaser, appealing to novices and geeks alike."--MS

Wine Spectator- 88 pts.--"Tasty, with a plump hint to the mix of yellow apple, ginger and tangerine flavors. Shows a light bitter almond note through the finish."--JM

Wine Enthusiast--87 pts.--"There's a mix of lemongrass, apricot, yellow apple and dusty mineral aromas on the nose. The palate is juicy and ripe in the same fruit tones, with an addition of blossomy floral notes entering on the midpalate. Semidry in style and with a crisp apple-peel finish, this Riesling shows immediate appeal."-AP

Fruit Sources: 49% Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard (Keuka Lake), 37% Doyle Fournier Vineyard (Seneca Lake), 14% STV Estate Vineyard (Seneca Lake).

From Winemaker Paul Brock: "This fermentation was arrested to allow gorgeous natural sweetness to balance the crisp acidity of Finger Lakes Rieslings."
