A clear favorite in a lineup of 2013 late-harvest NY Rieslings, this lip smackingly unctuous wine calibrates sweet, luscious fruit against layers and layers of spicy, saffron complexities. Honey-dipped grapefruit and melon flavors are rich and opulent, yet not at all cloying. It's a bracing, zesty wine that's delicious sip after long sip.
