"The 2014 Riesling Semi-Dry is, said the winemaker, Wiemer's version of a Kabinett. It still seems largely dry-ish, if not exactly dry. This is a notable drop-off from the Reserves and single-vineyard wines, as you might expect, but it drinks very well. There is not the same level of tension on the finish or precision at the start, but it is not flabby and it tastes great. As with everything Wiemer makes, this will age pretty well, perhaps better than anticipated. From top to bottom, oldies to new releases, this may well have been my single best tasting while up in the Finger Lakes. It wasn't my first trip to Wiemer, but it was certainly the most interesting. There were, to be sure, some close contenders and different points where I could argue the matter vis-a-vis other lineups. When all is said and done, though, this was simply a terrific array. The Wiemer winery and winemaker Fred Merwath are firing on all cylinders and have been for some time. This is one of the region's indisputable flagships – one of its greatest estates."
" Our versatile, Kabinett-style Riesling is marked by a refined interplay of sweetness and freshness. Harvested in the heart of our season, this delicate, fruit-forward wine reveals the classic flavors of the varietal. The Riesling grape is known for expressing well in any range, from dry to sweet. Our semi-dry style exhibits a rich mouthfeel and a satisfying finish. Its mango-like juiciness makes this crowd-pleasing wine appropriate for summer sipping, or for pairing with myriad full-flavored foods. " ~ Winery notes
Great Riesling - I was introduced to this Riesling at Houston's Restaurant. It is great!
