2011 Red Newt Lahoma Vineyards Riesling

newtFinger Lakes rieslings are probably the best value in North American white wine, and this bottle of Red Newt adds more evidence to the case.

A step up from the their “circle label” bottling, this off-dry bottle is rich and full, but with enough acid and minerality to never seem cloying. It tastes like granny smith apples and pineapple and rocks. I can’t imagine anyone drinking this and not liking it.

I paid $15 for it and drank it with pork tacos. Stupendous bargain.

About davetalkswine

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
