Crisp and dry, this white emphasizes the mineral and herbal character of the variety. A bit austere, but refreshing, and should match well with food. Drink now.

Citrus and spice overtones dominate the nose of this elegant Riesling. On the palate, slightly sweet fruit flavors are balanced by mineral and spice. Pair with grilled seafood, salads and cheeses.

Round and easy, with an off-dry edge to the pear and green apple notes, backed by a twinge of kiwifruit that adds some nice snap to the finish. Drink now.

Seneca Lake's Red Newt, owned by former Chateau Lafayette Reneau winemaker Dave Whiting, is carving out a reputation as one of the finest wineries in all of New York. The 2000 Riesling is a classic semi-dry, packed with apricot, grapefruit flavors and a hint of green apple on the finish.

Racy and fresh, with distinct slate, lime and green apple flavors and a juicy finish. Delicious. Great job. Drink now through 2003.
