Tasting Notes

This Late Harvest Riesling is crafted in the traditional German Spätlese style, with natural sweetness balanced by lively acidity. The outcome is a wine with an elegant yet luscious nose, followed by a generous palate of crisp ripe stone fruit and floral notes, lingering into a long, naturally sweet finish. 4.3% residual sugar.

The Late Harvest Riesling receives additional time on the vine which allows the grapes to fully develop their flavor profiles. The later picking also helps sugars to concentrate, resulting in a sweeter, full-bodied wine.

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 is now owned by Wiemer's winemaker of six years, Fred Merwarth and his family.  Fred and team are only improving on this benchmark winery.
