Hermann J. Wiemer Riesling Dry 2009

Oskar Bynke was on hand last week in New York City pouring his wines at Union Square Wines during a celebration of rieslings with two toher winemakers and a book signing by Evan Dawson the author of Summer in a Glass.

More than just meeting Oskar, I was thrilled to try some of his newest wines. On hand he poured his Riesling Dry 2009. It was a revelation. It smelled like a big fresh wedge of granny smith apple cut and placed in a glass. The wine was bright and light and refreshing. It danced on the tongue. I was so impressed, with the absolute elegance of the wine. An incredible display of winemaking technique.
