  1. $34
Completely atypical to any other producer in the Finger Lakes, or likely, beyond, this semisweet Riesling is a fascinating study of winemaker Kim Engle’s unusual style.

Layers of spice, lanolin and orange rind stand out curiously on this intriguing Riesling fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeast, and subject to 5 months on its lees.

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $20
Winemaker Kim Engle’s wines always stand out in a flight, and this curiously spicy, sepia-toned Gewürztraminer is no exception.

Not a classic Gewürztraminer by any means, but uniquely delicious.  — A.I.  (3/1/2014)

Bloomer Creek 2010 Tanzen Dame Auten Vineyard 1st Harvest VS Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  1. $30
Intoxicating on the nose, with super-sized fruit and floral aromatics, this slightly off-dry Riesling from Bloomer Creek is proof positive of just how ripe the 2010 Finger Lakes vintage was. Surprisingly complex on the palate, it reveals itself in layers of tea leaves and potpourri, crushed stones, and bracing orange-tinged acidity.  — A.I.  (4/1/2012)
