Wine Spectator 90
"A fresh, high-pitched style, with pippin apple, fennel and lime pith notes backed by a twinge of slate on the finish. An understated style, but with purity and latent length, showing a sense of precision. Drink now through 2024. 1,847 cases made."

The Estate
Named after his parents who met while attending nearby Cornell University, Joan Hillick and Edward Hobbs, Paul founded Hillick & Hobbs with the vision to create Riesling inspired by its European counterparts by pushing the boundaries of modern viticulture in the Finger Lakes.

After solidifying an international winemaking career, he began to recognize that the Finger Lakes had all the desirable attributes climate, slate soils, and sloping hills of the greatest Riesling producing regions. Paul, along with his brother David Hobbs, began actively searching for a site, and after years combing the area, discovered a property with notable similarities to the Mosel. In 2013, the purchase of the property was finalized and the process of developing a vineyard from scratch began. Nearly a decade later, the inaugural vintage is released from the 78-acre estate.
