NYTimes: Asimov on FingerLake Rieslings

by TomHill » Fri Oct 11, 2013 11:44 am

Very nicely done article by Eric in today's NYTimes:
NYTimes:FingerLakeRieslings
which brings some well-deserved publicity to the area. Wish we could find some of those wines out west.
Interesting that the most controversial wine was a extended skin-contact Riesling. No surprise there. I understand they're experimenting some w/ that technique in Germany, but have not tried any yet.

Lots of lees contact in Germany. I have not tried a skin contact Riesling either.

I'm sure the cool kids will let us know that orange riesling is all the rage. :mrgreen:

When I produced Finger Lakes Riesling in the 1980s, I did two consecutive vintages with skin contact. The first won an award and the wine lived for more than 13 years before starting to fade; the second, not so much. Ran out of money before I was able to research why the difference.

Oh, and the Bloomer Creek that Eric talked about: a producer that tries all kinds of experiments and comes up with quite an array of wines.

Jon,

They have their own space, and I believe it's close to the cafe. http://www.bloomercreek.com/
