  1. Hermann J. Wiemer Reserve Dry Riesling

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#31082

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Apr 2021
    The 2019 Dry Riesling Reserve comes in with seven grams of residual sugar, very perceptibly dry and 12.5% alcohol. This is often the right combination of value and quality in the Wiemer lineup — not as expensive as the single-vineyard wines, but competing well with them. So, too, this year. In fact, might this be the winner? I suspect not in the long run, but this certainly excels in 2019. Concentrated and structured, this is balanced as well. It’s dry, but never shrill. It coats the mouth and finishes well. Beautifully wrought, this shows off its purity and never seems to have a hair out of place. It should have a long life ahead, maybe longer than indicated. This does have to prove that it can develop in the cellar, but right now I have to lean up on this. It’s a beauty. There were 1,200 cases produced from these vineyards: 45% Josef, 20% HJW, 20% Magdalena, 15% Julia.

    From a blend of estate sites, this dry Riesling offers soothing aromas of peach, apricot, lavender and orchard blossom. It’s sultry and creamy on the medium-bodied palate, but well honed by vibrant acidity. A blossomy tone lingers throughout, with a rich core of peach and apple struck against a gently pithy texture. Drink through 2028. (Alexander Peartree)

    This reserve combines fruit from Josef (45 percent), HJW, Magdalena and Julia vineyards. According to Merwarth, Josef carries this wine because of the way its vines retain acidity in the grapes even late into harvest. The wine’s depths of fruit expression — deep apple and whiffs of peach — is implied without being demonstrative, held in check by its dryness. After two days open, a creaminess comes through, layered and beautiful, the finish as cool as an October night in the Finger Lakes.

  2. Hermann J. Wiemer Magdalena Vineyard Riesling

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#30831

    WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2021
    Concentrated aromas of lemon oil, peach, pine and struck flint grace the nose of this single-vineyard Riesling. It’s rounded and full in feel on the palate, filled out by juicy orchard fruit flavors yet expertly honed by zesty acidity and a delicate grip of white tea. A lemon oil tone lingers on the finish, but with ample lift and length.
