(chuckle) A finger Lakes Wine, even

Posted by jj on May 6, 1999 at 18:52:15:

Well, although I just am not very enthusiastic about most of what comes out of the finger lakes, Swedish Hill (yes, that IS the name of the vineyard) makes a really REALLY fine desert Reisling most years. It's bottled at "more brix than you can imagine" and usually has quite a boytritis (sp?) character that is more like a Sauterne than anything else.

They keep winning awards with it, but they have little if any distribution, so it's hard to find.

But that's the best kind of Reisling, I think, desert.
