Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate reviews our 2019 Lineup

May 4, 2021 | Featured, News & Noteworthy

 Mark Squires of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently reviewed and published the article, “USA, Emerging Regions, New York, Finger Lakes: The Wiemer Collection” for the April 2021 edition. Squires tasted and scored a swath of Rieslings and sparkling wines from Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard. The favorable notes and scores across the board reflect the strength and purity of the 2019 vintage. 

Squires writes, “The bottom line: Wiemer (which also, by the way, owns Standing Stone, the only other entrant in this report) had a fine 2019 vintage. They go from strength to strength…The sparklers were super, as is typically the case. Then we get to the more traditional table wine lineup, and there’s a lot to love.”

14 wines were reviewed, with 13 receiving 90 points or above. Highlights include the Riesling Reserve Dry 2019 which received a 94 point rating. Squires writes of the wine, “Concentrated and structured, this is balanced as well… It coats the mouth and finishes well. Beautifully wrought, this shows off its purity and never seems to have a hair out of place.” Squires also writes of the Josef Vineyard Riesling which was rated at 93+, “It is a bright, transparent, vivacious, gorgeous and sometimes ethereal presentation.”

The Winery’s flagship bottlings, the Dry and Semi-Dry Rieslings both received 91 points and were touted for their quality, price point, and longevity.
