This inaugural vintage from Paul Hobbs’ steep-sloped estate is everything we love about this region’s stealthy Riesling dominance in the US. Crisp, dry and beautifully balanced, the expressive nose of white peaches, white flowers, mandarin orange and vanilla builds with every swirl of the glass. Bright acidity and lingering minerality underscore an elegant, vibrant palate. Time to take note, we sense great things to come from this project.
Such an expressive nose of white peaches, nectarines, mandarin oranges, white flowers and vanilla. Grows with each swirl of the glass. Intensely mineral and racy palate that feels lighter than it is, because it’s so precise and vibrant, the lime and mineral freshness making the long. dry finish mouthwatering. The first release from David and Paul Hobbs’ riesling project in the Finger Lakes.
