Semi-Dry Riesling 2017

The Red Newt Riesling is a take on the more complex and age-worthy Finger Lakes Riesling style. With the same tropical and orange fruit aromas as the Dry Riesling, the Riesling is slightly off-dry in style rather than overly sugary. The fans of Riesling from across the world will enjoy this little-known gem. White wines from Red Newt include Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris, while red wines include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. During the elevage process, no yeast or sugar are added to the wines.
