Hermann J. Wiemer, Frost Cuvée 2013, Finger Lakes, New York
Tasting Note: This golden-colored cuvée has aromas of lychee, peach stonefruit and melon.
On the palate the wine is plush with medium acidity.
You feel the wine on the attack as it rolls towards your mid-palate slightly fading and then gaining flavor and acid momentum towards the back of your mouth.
The cuvée has a long pleasing finish. Additional flavors of clove and ginger also contribute to the complexity of flavor.
This wine serves as a blend of the white wines of this vintage year; a wonderful idea cleverly conceived, and more importantly well executed.
Bottle Note: This beautiful, off-dry blend of riesling, chardonnay and gewürztraminer elegantly combines the best character of what each grape has to offer every vintage. The result is an exciting, zesty wine – fresh on the palate with a lingering gentle finish that pairs with a myriad of food options, making it the perfect choice for any occasion. Gewürztraminer 8%, riesling 8%, gruner veltliner 5%, sauvignon blanc 7%, chardonnay 65%. Seneca Lake AVA. RS: 1.2%.
