Isnt there option c)? I certainly wouldnt dismiss your response, Thomas. The intent of my question was to really learn about a region that I haven't given a fair shake and one I have read little about regarding quality equal to Germany or Alsace. [sarcasm] And being the regional shill that you are, I don't plan on straight out believing you [/sarcasm] Which brings me to option c) and that is to make a more concerted effort to try to disprove my notion of NY wines being just ok.Thomas wrote:You can believe me or you can pooh, pooh my answer, but it is not just my opinion--it is an opinion with a basis.
That leads me to the next question. What would be a producer, preferably with reasonable availability as I live in a criminal state, that you would recommend. In Alsace, one can point beginners and experts alike to producers such as Trimbach, Weinbach, Z-H. In Mosel there are consistent producers aplenty such as Christoffel, Prum and the like. Where would you point a NY FL novice who is in search of a producer that exemplifies the region?
