Professional Wine Reviews for Red Newt Tango Oaks Vineyard Riesling 2013

Rated 91 by Decanter
While the nose is beautiful with its scents of kefir lime, tobacco, oyster shell, and stone, the palate is a bit disjointed at the moment, with the acidity standing somewhat apart from fruit. This had resolved significantly when I returned to the open bottle later in the day, so my suspicion is that more time is required to knit the wine’s bones with its flesh. (Vinous)
Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Riesling "Tango Oaks Vineyard" is not yet released (set for July 1), but it is at least as good as the 2012–and maybe better. It seems fresher and livelier, for one thing, and I don't think that is merely a symptom of being a year younger. Simply gorgeous in aromatics and intensity of flavor, it may not quite have the concentration of the 2012, but it seems to do everything else better. Rather dry (just 5 grams per liter of residual sugar), its underlying acidity supports the fruit and pounds it into the palate. It's a beauty.

Winery Red Newt

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have produced some of the finest wines of the Old World over the past couple of centuries, and are quickly becoming much loved by New World audiences as their influence continues to spread across the globe. They are generally grown and cultivated in colder climates, as is found in their native Germany, where they have the remarkable ability to pick up and express interesting features of their terroir, or the ground on which they are grown. As such, wine enthusiasts generally find Riesling one of the more interesting white grape varietals, as they produce aromas which are highly floral and perfumed alongside both fruit flavors and refreshing notes of stone and alpine water, depending on where they have been grown. Furthermore, Riesling grapes produce a large variety of fine wines, from still to sparkling, sweet to dry, and wineries which work with this grape have long since been experimenting with both frozen and rotten grapes to find out just how versatile and exciting this varietal can be.

Region: New York

New York state has a wine history which stretches back to the mid-17th century, when Dutch settlers first began cultivating grape vines in the Hudson Valley. Since then, the wine industry of New York has grown from strength to strength, mixing the old with the new as wineries continue to experiment with modern techniques alongside their traditional heritage. Indeed, certain wineries in New York state hold a claim to being amongst the oldest and most well established in the New World, with at least one dating back over three hundred and fifty years. New York state is responsible for a relatively small range of grape varietals, due to its cooler, damper climate, but many varietals such as Riesling and Seyval Blanc thrive in such conditions and produce wines a of singular quality.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
