Glenora Riesling Wine Review

Today I would like to chat about a New York State Finger Lakes Wine: Glenora Riesling.

Founded in 1977, Glenora Wine Cellars was the first winery on Seneca Lake. The Glenora winery property boasts a 30-room inn and restaurant adjoining the winery on a 40-acre estate.

Vintner’s Notes:

Riesling from Glenora Wine Cellars has fresh fruit aromas suggestive of apricots and peaches. The luscious semi-dry finish is balanced by the natural acidity characteristics of the Finger Lakes vineyards. We selected the finest Riesling grapes grown in the Finger Lakes

The Riesling is a grape variety which is ideally suited to the Finger Lakes Region. Our soil types and cool growing season mature the grape slowly, producing fresh, bright fruit, floral aromas and flavors reminiscent of nectarines and honey. Natural acidity and lingering grape sugar are balanced in the fresh semi-sweet finish. Our Riesling is enjoyable by itself, as an aperitif or with a variety of foods including fruits, cheeses and most summer salads.

My Notes

This is an award winning wine all over the US. That usually makes me skeptical when so many people offer rave reviews and accolades, buuuuut Hubby and I enjoyed this wine very much! The bouquet is fruity, the color a pale gold. Classic light-bodied Riesling, touch of effervescence on the tongue, slight refreshing acid with a very smooth finish. The Glenora Riesling is delightful warm weather wine in my opinion.

I consider a Riesling a nice dinner wine. It pairs well with many things, including fish and chicken. The Glenora Riesling is also an excellent “glass of wine” not requiring food at all to be enjoyed.

Selling for approximately $13 per bottle, I rate the Glenora Riesling as a definite buy.

Have you tried the Glenora Riesling? What did you think?

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.
