HomeTasting Notes2011 Red Newt Cellars Sawmill Creek Vineyards Riesling Becky Sue Epstein May 12, 2013 Tasting Notes 1 Comment In a tasting of Finger Lakes Rieslings, this wine stood out because of its finesse and complexity. It has a classic Riesling aroma of minerals shading into honeyed pear. The flavor is somewhat crisp, layered and mineral, with citrus too. More tropical fruit and grapefruit appear as it warms in the glass. Medium finish, just barely off-dry. Pairs well with pork, lightly-smoked ham and other medium-light meats. Highly recommended: 90 BSE WHO: Red New Cellars WHAT: Riesling WHERE: Finger Lakes, New York State, United States WHEN: 2011 HOW MUCH: $12 (media sample) http://derkellermeister.com Uwe Kristen I enjoyed Red Newt’s Sawmill Creek just as much, but the retail price is rather $22 than $12. Still a good deal.
