Paumanok Vineyards 2007 Dry Riesling

I picked this up one day in my wine shop. The had this Paumanok Vineyards 2007 Dry Riesling ($17.95) and the 2008, which is their current release, side by side.  I picked it up the older release to give it a try.

I have not been to Paumanok Vineyards, in Aquebogue, in some time, in fact I don’t remember the last time I was there. Bit after this tasting I will make sure I travel along route 25 the next time I go out tasting.

On the nose I was picking up loads of lime juice, granny smith apple and some pear. There was a minerality element that reminded me of rain-soaked rocks. There was also a floral note that rounded out the nose of this wine.

The taste was loaded with fresh squeezed lime and zesty citrus juice. It had a zippy uplifting acidity that made my mouth tingle. There was more apple and pear to round out the flavors.

I really enjoyed this wine. This was one of my favorite Riesling from Long Island. I highly recommend you pick this up the next time you see it.  I will be back to the shop to pickup and try the 2008 in the future.

We had this wine with chicken and steak fajita. It went well, the loads of lime elements really enhanced the food.
