“The Red Newt Riesling is our expression of the richer style of Finger Lakes Riesling, a style that we believe ages spectacularly well. Just off-dry in the style rather than overtly higher in sugar, our Riesling plays on the same tropical and orange fruit that are echoed in the Dry Riesling. For us, this is a hidden gem in our portfolio that we hope rewards Riesling fans everywhere.” More at
