Tasting Notes

This Riesling has a pleasantly coiled feel, with yellow and green apple, melon rind, chamomile, honeysuckle and white ginger notes that have lots of energy in reserve. The long, stony finish features a hint of citrus oil. 

 

Hermann J. Wiemer is regarded as one of the pioneers of viticulture and winemaking in the Finger Lakes. Wiemer emigrated to the Finger Lakes from Germany  in the 1960s, convinced that it could be a world-class region for Riesling. He brought with him centuries of family winemaking wisdom and prestigious degrees and honors. The winery has been owned since 2007 by Wiemer's former winemaker, Fred Merwarth and his family.  Fred and team are only improving on this benchmark winery.

 

Planted in 1976, the HJW Vineyard features Hermann’s original plantings on Seneca Lake. Mature vines, combined with the site’s shallow topsoil and shale bedrock, produce lower yields, resulting in expressively vibrant flavors. Higher elevation and a greater distance from Seneca Lake contribute to a cooler growing season, resulting in a leaner, more austere wine with intense flavor and an excellent aging potential.
