Circle Riesling 2020

Circle Riesling is intended to be a classic example of Finger Lakes Riesling, with just enough residual sugar to bring out the rich orchard fruit aromas without overpowering the lemon zest and citrus that make it crisp and enjoyable to sip. The overall wine is easy to drink, but it is created with as much seriousness and unique complexity as any Riesling released by Red Newt. The idea is straightforward: a crowd-pleasing wine should nonetheless be multifaceted.
