Empire Estate Dry Riesling 2016, Finger Lakes, N.Y
In a column devoted to good wines that you might actually stand a chance of finding, the smallest-production wines with limited distribution are pretty much ruled out. Although online ordering from stores and wineries partly mitigates the problem, state regulations on shipping wine remain an often-frustrating and confusing patchwork.
This makes it hard for many people to get their hands on wines from small producers or even entire regions whose wines are not widely distributed. Which is why I was surprised that a superb Riesling I picked up recently in New York's Finger Lakes actually had decent distribution beyond the area.
The wine is Empire Estate's Dry Riesling 2016, one of the best wines I've had recently from this cool-climate region renowned for its Rieslings. The back label says that Empire Estate crafted the wine “to express the dry style of this dynamic grape.” And, in a nod to an unfortunate and still-widespread misconception, it notes that “Riesling doesn't always have to be sweet!”
