Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars 2011 Semi-Dry Riesling

Posted January 7, 2013 by Lenn Thompson in Regions

Located on the eastern side of Seneca Lake, Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars can always be counted on to deliver good values in under-$15 riesling — and this Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars 2011 Semi-Dry Riesling ($14) continues that tradition.

Very fruity on the nose, it offers aromas of green and yellow apple, sweet juicy musk melon and golden raisin.

Though noticeably sweet, the palate packs a fruit cocktail-like melange of apple, peach, melon and honey flavors, with subtle grapefruit and golden raisin notes with enough balancing acidity to keep it from being cloying — though a bit more verve through the mid-palate would really elevate the wine. Long and just off-dry on the finish, this is a wine for lovers of the fruity, forward style of off-dry riesling that is prevalent in the Finger Lakes.
