EMPIRE ESTATE DRY RIESLING
FINGER LAKES, NEW YORK 2016

Empire Estate was created to showcase an incredible winemaking region that we New Yorkers have right in our own backyard: The Finger Lakes. We crafted this wine to express the dry style of this dynamic grape - Riesling doesn't always have to be sweet! We hope you enjoy yet another one of the  many reasons why we love New York.

TASTING NOTES

 A brilliant yellow-gold color, on the nose this Riesling combines piercing mineral tones of shale, limestone & gravel, with aromas of green apple, lemon, citrus blossom and golden apricot. On the palate, lemon-lime acidity carries flavors of golden apple, grapefruit pith and ginger through a long, savory, mineral finish.

EMPIRE ESTATE DRY RIESLING
FINGER LAKES, NEW YORK 2016 Reserve

Made predominately from one vineyard site, this Reserve blend is a response to a wine that rose to the top in the cellar and had seemed special from the moment the grapes were picked. 

TASTING NOTES

Golden in color, this Riesling delivers intense aromas of baked golden apple, lemon cream, and candied ginger, along with savory tones of garden herbs, all backed by river rock & smoky mineral notes. Simultaneously rich and broad, yet focused on the palate, the finish balances ripe fruits & minerals with tremendous length.
