2021 Hillick & Hobbs Riesling Seneca Lake

$39.95

Situated on the southeastern banks of Seneca Lake, our estate vineyards’ steep slopes and row orientation encourage excellent air flow and early ripening. The 2021 vintage is a textural Riesling with fragrant aromas of gardenia followed by layers of pear, citrus, and crushed rock that are mirrored on the palate. A long finish is extended by crisp acidity and lingering minerality.

Tasting Panel

Aromas of honey and fresh linen intersect with tart lemon, frozen peach, and crisp Asian pear, carried on a sea breeze that tingles and arouses the palate. Initiated by taut acidity, salinity leaves an impact through the finish.

James Suckling

One of the stars of this challenging vintage. Cool and reserved nose with fresh mint, parsley and basil aromas. Some aeration in the glass teases a lot more crisp pear and yellow-apple aromas out of the wine and expands the mid-palate creaminess. Excellent structure and juiciness on the sleek and precise, medium-bodied palate. Complex wet-stone minerality at the self-confidently dry and crisp finish. Drink or hold.
