90 Points for 2016 Yellow Dog Vineyard Riesling in Wine Spectator

Our 2016 Yellow Dog Vineyard Riesling has received a rating of 90 Points in the October 2017 issue of Wine Spectator.

"A bright, high-pitched style, with Key lime, meringue, chamomile and quinine notes zipping through, followed by a bony finish. For fans of the dry style. Drink now through 2020." James Molesworth, Senior Editor

91 Points for 2015 Reserve Chardonnay in Wine Enthusiast

Our 2015 Reserve Chardonnay has received a rating of 91 Points in the November 2017 issue of Wine Enthusiast.

"While lavishly oaky and luscious in feel, this barrel- fermented Chardonnay maintains balance and levity. It's a ripe, plump wine, but fresh in acidity and delicate apple, lemon and spice flavors. A kiss of vanilla lingers nicely on the finish." Anna Lee C. Iijima, Contributing Editor


TAKE NOTE: Since this issue's publication, we have sold out of our 2015 Reserve Chardonnay (click here to view our technical sheet) vintage in our tasting room and online, and have since released our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay, which has not been rated yet, and is available in our tasting room and online. The 2015 vintage was in distribution nationwide, and might available at your local liquor store, and at some of your favorite restaurants.

The Good Life, Winter 2008

THE ICE WINE COMETH FROM THE GOOD LIFE  "On a blustery late November day, winemaker Mark Wagner heads south through the hillsides overlooking Seneca Lake. He passes bare vineyards picked clean in the harvest a month before. A mile or so south of the winery, he turns off into a dirt lane. Wagner pulls a few grapes, tastes, and tosses a few to his dog, Max. These grapes - hanging on the vine in the face of the wind, birds and the approaching frost - are special. They'll be turned into ice wine, a sweet nectarlike dessert drink. The Finger Lakes are a natural for ice wine production."

Drinks Magazine, September 2007

LAMOREAUX LANDING'S VIEW AND T23-CABERNET FRANC FIND APPROVAL IN DRINKS MAGAZINE "Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, the northernmost winery in the Banana Belt (of Seneca Lake) and the tasting room with the best view, produces excellent dry and semi-dry Riesling, as well as luscious and fruity Merlots. One unique wine made here is the unoaked Cabernet Franc, T-23, named for its steel fermentation tank. I have tasted T-23 favorably against examples from the Loire Valley, and it remains one my favorite food wines."
