Fox Run Semi-Dry Riesling 2020 / 750 ml.

Item#: 43125

WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 06/22
A spectacular value, this riesling has the concentration and elegance of wines three times the price. It leads with tree-fruit scents—pear, lime and lime leaf, apple—and carries a caramelly accent throughout. Its flavors are focused, concentrated, effortless, with a sweetness that one never notices, that rounds the wine, keeping it balanced and on point for a sumptuous meal, like a crown roast of pork.

A very juicy and citrusy off-dry riesling that has plenty of peach character on the well-structured palate. Striking oyster-shell character at the crisp and vibrant finish that leaps and bounds over the palate. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Rounded aromas of yellow apple and white peach meet dried field flowers and sun-baked clay in this semidry Riesling that deftly balanced fruit and earth elements. The palate shows a pleasing textural creaminess that is further filled out by ripe apple and peach flavors, with plenty of fresh acidity to lend ample balance. (Alexander Peartree)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2022
A nice fresh, crunchy style, which keeps the off-dry edge honest, this sports lime, fennel and pippin apple notes, with a honeysuckle-infused finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,472 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Where It's From

District / Finger Lakes

View more wines from Finger Lakes

Officially established in 1982, the Finger Lakes region has a storied history of wine production in New York State and is recognized the world over. The deep glacially formed lakes offer sublime growing conditions thanks to the sloping hillsides and moderating effect the lakes have on the temperature of the surrounding area.

The main growing regions are centered around Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake (which each have their own AVAs) but quality wine is being made throughout the region. Riesling is the belle of the ball in the Finger Lakes (oftentimes being compared to the Rieslings of Germany) but success has been had with Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and others.

Region / New York

Seeing as our store is located in the midst of New York's wine regions, we have a special affinity for New York wines. And so should you! New York is now producing some of the world's best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, and there are lots of other terrific wines made from grapes like Catawba, Niagara, Cabernet Franc and others being produced here, as well. Every year, the quality, reputation, and demand for New York wines continue to soar. What are you waiting for? Uncork New York!

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

A beautifully made crowd-pleaser, which is as vibrant and light-footed as it is juicy and peachy. Super-fresh with tons of garden-herb character that makes it hard to believe this has 28 grams per liter of unfermented grape sweetness. Wild-fermented in stainless steel. Vegan. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Aromas of canned pear and apple are met with candied white grapefruit and fennel pollen on the nose. Apple and pineapple flavors are jolted up by a kick of tonic on the palate. This sweet Riesling ends brisk and clean on the quick finish. (Alexander Peartree)

Lime, pippin apple and lychee notes give this a distinctive profile. It’s got good energy and freshness too, with a hint of sweetness on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,500 cases made. (James Molesworth)
RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 3rd Jun 2021
The 2020 Newt Riesling is another of the winery’s new offerings this year, all sourced from Lahoma vineyard. It comes in with 53 grams of residual sugar, 7.7 of total acidity and 9.1% alcohol. This was in bottle a bit less than six weeks when tasted. It’s not a full-on dessert wine, but it won’t exactly be a normal table wine either. Particularly given the winery’s mostly drier style, this new brand seems well into sugar. That might be the key difference between this and the winery’s other entry-level Riesling, the familiar and semi-dry Circle Riesling that winemaker Kelby Russell calls more “everyday” in style. Like the Circle Riesling of late, this has a smoky nose — a somewhat disturbing trend — but the fruit and sugar here are pretty delicious. It has enough acidity to avoid being cloying, and did I mention that it tastes great? It retains its balance all the while. If you like them on the sweeter side, it is a success at a nice price. Hopefully, the smoky aromatics will improve a bit. It wasn’t the most severe episode of that I’ve seen. Give it some air on opening it. There were 1,520 cases produced.

RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th May 2022
The 2020 Silvan Riesling is unoaked but for just two weeks in seventh-use French oak. It comes in with four grams of residual sugar, 7.4 of total acidity and 12.5% alcohol. Another beauty in this brand, this is fresh, crisp and transparent. Don’t worry about the wood, which is a non-factor in affecting flavor. It’s just a bit of spice for texture and mouthfeel. The rest shows precision, power and good depth. It’s a serious and stern dry Riesling with the ability to age. There is nothing fruity here. The balance here might lean a little more to fruit than with the 2019, to be sure, but they are pretty similar and neither is a wine to sip on its own on the porch. They need food. This and its predecessor vintage, not here at this time, make quite the dynamic duo. That they are so reasonably priced just puts the cherry on top. It will be interesting to see how they evolve and who wins in the end.
