Paumanok Dry Riesling 2015


SKU 21354


This wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks to preserve the Riesling varietal character. It offers aromas of lime, green apple, lilies, lilac and other white flowers. Dry with flavors of lime, green apple, white apricot, it finishes with intense acidity. Pair it with white meat dishes and lighter fish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Dry Riesling comes in at 11% alcohol and just three grams per liter of residual sugar. If last year's version seemed stony and slightly austere, this ups the ante. Laced with a bit of flint, this finishes with a touch of lemon. In between, the big burst of acidity grips the tongue and makes it clear that this is a food wine, not a casual sipper. Modest in body and big in power, this unevolved and rather austere Riesling could use a year in the cellar because the fruit is just a bit difficult to find now. In many respects, however, this is mightily impressive--have your expectations in order and don't think of cracking it for a simple sip on the porch.

Wine SpectatorLively, with lime and pippin apple notes zipping through, backed by an echo of straw through the finish. Drink now. 626 cases made.
