Rated 94 Points
Such an expressive nose of white peaches, nectarines, mandarin oranges, white flowers and vanilla. Grows with each swirl of the glass. Intensely mineral and racy palate that feels lighter than it is, because it's so precise and vibrant, the lime and mineral freshness making the long. dry finish mouthwatering. The first release from David and Paul Hobbs' riesling project in the Finger Lakes. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
The pursuit to craft world-class Riesling has brought Paul Hobbs back to his family roots in upstate New York to create site-specific estate wines from the emerging Finger Lakes region. Founded in 2013, the winery is named after his parents, Joan Hillick and Edward Hobbs, and planted to high density vines on steep slate slopes.
Hillick & Hobbs Estate Vineyard Seneca Lake Dry Riesling inaugural vintage from the steep-sloped estate presents a delicate bouquet of spring white flowers and tangerine peel mingled with accents of wet slate. Elegant and inviting on the palate, crisp pear and lime zest highlights are underscored by a bright acidity and lingering mineral notes that seamlessly glide into a clean and vibrant finish.
