Red Newt Cellars Circle Riesling

Red Newt Cellars Circle Riesling (750ml)

89 points
New York • 2017 • 750ml
The 2017 Circle Riesling is a blend of vineyards (Tango Oaks and Lahoma) coming in at 31 grams per liter of residual sugar and 7.5 of total acidity, plus 10.5% alcohol. This is supposed to be Red Newt's easy-drinking label, on the sweeter side and with a larger production (4,000 cases). Yet it has always performed well. Maybe this year it performs even better? I hesitate to be so optimistic about the entry-level, but it seems terrific this year. There is enough acidity—it does have some tension on the finish on opening - to herd the sugar into controlled lanes. It is fresh and fun yet just a little distinguished as well. It is transparent and adds a touch of stones on the finish. It drank beautifully the next day as well, although admittedly it did show better on the first day. Overall, it's another super bargain from Red Newt (and the Finger Lakes) this issue.89 Points Wine Advocate
