Glenora Wine Cellars Riesling 2011

A fabulous summer evening on the patio grilling a nice thick salmon steak and a few boneless chicken breast.  These were served with Alaskan crab legs, sauteed zucchini and white rice with parsley. Best of all, I get to open another bottle of Finger Lakes Riesling.  This 2011 was from Glenora Wine Cellars.  The oldest winery on Seneca Lake, widely known for its warm hospitality and magnificent lakeside setting has garnered exemplary reviews both in and outside Finger Lakes Wine Country.
Glenora Wine Cellars, a pioneer in the renaissance of the Finger Lakes wine industry, has been producing award winning high quality wines for over 34 years. In 1977 Glenora Wine Cellars was the first winery to open on Seneca Lake, in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes Wine Country. Today the property offers a 30-room inn (Inn at Glenora) and a gourmet restaurant (Veraisons) joining the winery on the beautifully groomed 40-acre estate.

The Inn at Glenora Wine Cellars, & Veraisons Restaurant offers a unique opportunity to enjoy all the amenities of the Finger Lakes in one beautiful location!
You can also just stroll over to their spacious tasting room and sample their beautiful Rieslings like the Glenora Wine Cellars Riesling 2011($13)
A very appealing light straw color with aromas of nectarines, pear and apple blossom on the nose.  The mouth was filled with peach and pineapple, a touch of citrus with some very sweet apple.  The finish was medium/long a filled with honey coated apricots. This medium sweet Riesling was a perfect compliment to the grilled salmon and chicken.  Very highly recommended!!
