FLXWine Winechat

On May 27th, #winechat returned to the Finger Lakes to learn more about the region, discuss and taste wines from Dr. Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars, Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, and Heron Hill Winery. The Finger Lakes Wine Alliance sent out some samples for a virtual tasting of the region's wines as a special #winechat. They also included a very cool #FLXWine tee-shirt that is incredibly comfortable and in heavy rotation right now. The Finger Lakes region is producing some great wines right now - if you didn't know, this year's Wine Blogger Conference will be held there. Great wine, great food, great views and things to do - should be a fun time, sorry I have to miss it.

Tasting Notes:
Dr. Konstantin Frank Grüner Veltliner 2014:  citrus, green herb, stone fruit,  lots of acid and minerality; 457 cases; SRP $15.
Heron Hill Winery Unoaked Chardonnay 2013: unfortunately, this was a corked bottle (or something else was off) and undrinkable.
Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars 2013 Red Oak Riesling: Floral, smoke, and lemon aromas; stone fruit, citrus, and floral flavors; sweetness balanced by acid; cork closure; SRP $20.
Wines provided for tasting purposes - all opinions are my own.
