Bellwether ‘Sawmill Creek Vineyard’ Dry Riesling 2014

From a site on Seneca Lake, this Riesling shows the precision inherent in Kris Matthewson’s winemaking ability. It’s a firm, texturized style, with bracing acidity (he picks at Kabinett-level ripeness) and a quartz-like minerality not often encountered in the region.
