Paumanok Vineyards 2008 Dry Riesling (Confusing, but Enjoyable)

When I see a dry riesling, I expect a crisp apple scent, some apple-like flavor and maybe lime too.  In this case, I was surprised to get many of the traditional sauvignon blanc flavors like grass and crisp citrus with the finish of a riesling – the crisp, but very faint apple.  This is a good riesling for people who think that all riesling tastes like apple cider and you know who you are.  It’s bright and refreshing and smooth all at the same time.  This was another one of our Hamptons purchases as Paumanok is a Long Island (North Fork) vineyard.
