Finger Lakes AVA
cGregor Vineyard is located in Dundee, within the Finger Lakes region of New York state (rather than the Dundee in the Willamette Valley), on the East Bluff of Keuka Lake. Gentle winds off the lake influence the grapevines, creating a unique terroir.
Their 2013 Riesling had fresh fruit basket aromas of green apples, lemons, apricots, pineapple and slightly unripe peaches. There was a distinct minerality on the nose as well. Once sipped, our mouths were filled with a whole range of fruit flavors, from tropical to stone fruits. Notes of apples, mangos, sweet pineapple and apricots all swirled around in our mouths. Although this wine was semi-sweet, it had good acidity and finished quite dry, making it incredibly food friendly.
