2021 Hillick & Hobbs Dry Riesling Seneca Lake, NY USA

$37.99 USD


Winemaker's Notes

"Situated on the southeastern banks of Seneca Lake, our estate vineyards’ steep slopes and row orientation encourage excellent air flow and early ripening. The 2021 vintage is a textural riesling with fragrant aromas of gardenia followed by layers of pear, citrus, and crushed rock that are mirrored on the palate. A long finish is extended by crisp acidity and lingering minerality.

"Aromas of honey and fresh linen intersect with tart lemon, frozen peach, and crisp Asian pear, carried on a sea breeze that tingles and arouses the palate. Initiated by taut acidity, salinity leaves an impact through the finish."

Rated 95 Points Tasting Panel

"One of the stars of this challenging vintage. Cool and reserved nose with fresh mint, parsley and basil aromas. Some aeration in the glass teases a lot more crisp pear and yellow-apple aromas out of the wine and expands the mid-palate creaminess. Excellent structure and juiciness on the sleek and precise, medium-bodied palate. Complex wet-stone minerality at the self-confidently dry and crisp finish. Drink or hold."

Rated 94 Points James Suckling

"This is Paul Hobbs's homecoming, a traveling winemaker returning to his family's roots, the winery named for his parents. This third release is a posh wine, dry and lean, with yeasty scents of apple, celery and lime. The flavors lean more tropical, with peach and passion fruit, all delivered within a beautiful structure, elegant, modestly creamy, with a delicious mouthwatering tang. The flavors drive long into the finish, for pasta with parsley pesto."
