N/ Pleasant florals, peaches, apricots, balsa wood, yellow grasses, and light vaseline. T/ Coating full mouthfeel.

USA, Riesling, Standing Stone, Old West Block, Finger Lakes, New York, 2012

Dry, but a touch of sweet works well with the rich, full flavors of steeped hay, soft honeysuckle, honey, pear, and pineapple.  Clean, but full and rounded fruit-dominated close.  Extended finish. http://www.standingstonewines.com/ Winemakers / Owners = Tom & Marti Macinski […]
