Dry Riesling 2016 - Limited Edition Library Wine

This wine is sold at our Lake George & Bolton Landing Tasting Rooms, the Queensbury Winery Headquarters, AND is available for Shipping or Pickup.

What is a Library Wine?

In 2014, we began setting aside four cases of our best dry varietal wines, each of that particular vintage year. Stored in the proper conditions  (in a cool, dark place, arranged on their side), just for you, we have been saving four cases of each ever since! 

How did we decide which wines to put in the Library?
There's a different and special reason for choosing a library wine – whether we had only created a limited supply or the wine sold out too quickly, it was immensely popular or it won a particularly notable award in its vintage year. Each wine is chosen for a unique reason.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Dry Riesling is moderately full-bodied and well-rounded, but zesty and fresh. This wine offers notes of tropical fruit and peach with a clean acidity and lingering spiciness on the palate.
Ratings
85 pts: Wine Enthusiast Magazine; 90 pts: Catherine Fallis, Master Sommelier - Planet Grape Wine Review: "Flavorful, mellow and lightly sweet with notes of ripe peach and pineapple, lily, lilac, coconut snowball, cotton candy and a refreshing pink lemonade tartness for balance."
