A Tasting of Dry Rieslings at Verve Wine (NYC) – 13 September 2017

John Haeger and Dustin Wilson MS orchestrated a tasting and discussion of dry Rieslings from recent vintages at Verve Wines in New York City on Wednesday 13 September 2017.  Wines tasted included the 2014 Bürgergarten Trocken from Müller-Catoir (Pfalz), the 2015 Hermannshölle “Magnus” Trocken from Jakob Schneider (Nahe), two dry 2015 single-vineyard Rieslings from Ravines in New York’s Finger Lakes, and Austrian Rieslings from Malat, Knoll and Prager.  Verve’s attractive premises in Tribeca should be a magnet for any curious consumer who has reason to be in this increasingly upscale neighborhood.  Tastings are now held late afternoon to early evening on most weekdays.  Wilson is expert in wines from many corners of the globe, and sometimes collaborates (as above) with visitors with special expertise.
