Nathan Kendall Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2019, New York State, USA

Nathan Kendall

Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Riesling from New York State, USA. 10.9% ABV. 

It has a complex nose  with  candied lime and lemon peels, green apple and a hint of fresh ginger at the end. Lovely citrus acidity and slight creaminess to the texture from barrel aging.

Tasting notes from Alexander Peartree, Wine Enthusiast

"Pristine aromas of steel, lemon and stone drive this textural off-dry Riesling. The entry to the medium-bodied palate is smooth and silky, broadened out by juicy white-fruit flavors and honed by lime-driven acidity. There's a delicate framing of white-tea-like astringency that keeps it all in check." 91/100 Points

Producer Profile Nathan Kendall

Nathan K wines was founded in 2011 by Finger Lakes (New York) native Nathan Kendall, an internationally trained winemaker with a passion for creating old world style wines using quality grapes and minimal intervention. Nathan's focus is on Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. All lots are carefully sorted, and the pristine fruit then undergoes long spontaneous fermentations. Post fermentation, the wine ages for months on the gross lees to enhance the texture. Wines are then carefully racked, never fined, and gently filtered before bottling. The bottled wines then receive 2-3 years of bottle age to evolve and achieve the best possible expression of the Finger Lakes.
