Product Description

The 2015 Empire Estate Dry Riesling brings aromas of shale, crushed stone, and minerals, as well as fruit tones of ripe apricot, golden apple and baked lemon. An intense burst of acidity hits the palate, carrying along with it flavors of ginger, lemon and lime zest, and golden peach that carry into a long, mineral-laced finish.

Appellation: Finger Lakes AVA, New York
Residual Sugar: 5.07 g/l

91 Points - James Suckling
"Full white-peach nose with touches of cassis and grapefruit, then a generous ripe palate with citrusy acidity that lifts the fullish body. The vivid, long mineral finish with some textural complexity makes this stand out in the field. Drink now or in 2018 for the full fruit, but this can age for three to four years."

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Dry Riesling, just the second vintage of this label, comes in with just 5.1 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. Along the lines of the 2014, this is very dry, rather piercing and quite focused. The 2014 might have a bit more energy and this might have a bit more flavor. Call it two sides of the same coin (although this is more unevolved and thus a little more subject to projections). They are pretty similar. If forced to choose, I probably had a minor preference for the very precise 2014, but reasonable minds might differ and that preference might just be based on the 2014 having an extra year in which to settle down. There were 1,800 cases produced."
