Bellangelo, Dry Riesling 2013, Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: Lemon-to-gold in color, this dry riesling has a nose of green apple, lemon zest with a barely-perceptible hint of lime.
The aromas carry to the palate with intense tartness asserting itself mid-palate working its way towards the back of your tongue.
Bellangelo’s medium-bodied riesling is high in acidity.
The acidity overwhelms the sweetness to some extent but the wine comes into balance overall especially if enjoying this wine with food.
A refreshing riesling that would serve as a useful palate cleanser when serving appetizers at the start of a dinner party when you want to leave your guests’ palate’s refreshed for the next offering.
Bottle Note: At Bellangelo we specialize in hand crafting small lot, authentic wines that offer a maximum expression of Finger Lakes terroir. Riesling is renowned for its exceptional food pairing versatility, but we would like to suggest pairing it with broiled baby lobster tail with coriander better, sweet and sour chicken and apricot skewers, or watermelon feta salad with olive oil and mint.
