I am looking for some other examples of domestic dry Riesling for btg. I am currently pouring Trefethen. Thank you.
Weimer in Seneca Lake
Konstantin Frak and Keuka Springs in Keuka Lake (Increadible Dinomite vn. Dry Gewurztraminer 0 residual sugar)
Yes yes and yes! But what about Brooks! Her riesling is amazing and value priced!!
I saw Elk Cove mentioned, their Riesling is lovely. Scribe Riesling from Sonoma is a favorite.
Im going to have to put my hat in the finger lakes pool. Empire Estate is fantastic, and for some guests the fact it is made by Thomas Pastuszak, the wine director of the NoMad restaurant group; could be a selling point. I also really like the Hermann J . Wiemer wines from the region, but they tend to be a little more old world in style.
Calder, Stony Hill, and Smith-Madrone from Napa. Lots of fun stuff from Anderson Valley (Husch, Navarro, etc) but they are rarely *bone* dry, in my experience. And lots of seconds to the other suggestions: Tatomer and all things Finger Lakes. Not sure if anyone's mentioned Red Newt but I love them.
Ovum is an excellent producer, and I believe John works exclusively with older plantings.
Trisaetum's range of Rieslings from different soil types are a really cool window into the variety and region
Depending on what your threshold for "dry" is, two relatively large production wines from Washington that I think are quite good could fit the bill: Eroica from Chateau Ste. Michelle and Poet's Leap from Long Shadows. Smaller-scale stuff from WA that could be worth looking at as well include bottles from Efeste and Dunham Cellars.
I second Smith-Madrone! Mari Vineyards "Scriptorium" Riesling from Michigan is also stellar.
Stony Hill is nice. I used the 2013 in a pairing menu recently, not incredibly complex though. I would say Empire Estate from the Finger Lakes is the best dry Riesling ive ever tasted
Huge fan of the Reeve Riesling - made with Ross Cobb of cobb wines and formerly from hirsch vineyards. Rockin' juice and some of the best Riesling in the country. Don't know which pour price for which you are looking, but it wholesales for about $20 a bottle in MA.
Forge and Red Tail Ridge make some beautiful stuff out of NY.
Chateau St Michelle has a ton of exposure in retail, but I recall their Riesling being a great value.
Hermann J. Wiemer (Finger Lakes) and Paetra (Oregon)
Brooks Winey in Oregon!
also Kelli beat me to it (because she introduced me to it, via Phoenix Masterclass) Navarro is incredible.
Ovum and Teutonic out of Oregon I think are great for the price. If you want to stay in Napa I think Smith Madrone is great. I agree about the Forge flx call. Red Tail Ridge is great too.
