LaBelle Non-Vintage Riesling, $13.99, 88 points, was bought at "The Fresh Market" in Bedford.
The color is clear with just a slight golden tint.
Crab apple is the nose, but the flavors are peachy, with apricot, and a flutter of nuttiness, while the finish is long on tart green apple and white pepper.
The texture is round and near-dry with good acidity on a light-plus body.
Grapes were sourced from the Finger-lakes and that's a big plus for this newly expanded home-spun winery.
Great effort! When folks talk about buying locally, this one is a logical choice; New Year's Day Asian cuisine, here I come.
