The recent Critics Challenge competition yielded 5 Platinum, 9 Gold, and 15 Silver medals for New York wineries. 





Besides the Chateau Frank 2006 Blanc de Noirs mentioned above, the other Platinum awards went to Fox Run Vineyards 2008 Cabernet Franc/Lemberger; Goose Watch Winery 2011 Riesling-Gewurztraminer; and Wagner Vineyards 2011 Riesling Select and 2010 Semi-Dry Riesling.





Gold medals went to Fox Run Vineyards 2010 Riesling 12, Lake Dana; Goose Watch Classic Cream Sherry; Sherwood House Vineyards 2008 Cabernet Franc, Estate Grown; Sparkling Pointe 2006 Blanc de Blancs, 2009 Topaz Imperial, and 2002 Brut Seduction; Swedish Hill Riesling Cuvee and 2011 Vidal Blanc; and Wolffer Estate 2007 Fatalis Fatum.





At the International Wine & Spirits Competition, Fox Run 2009 Tierce Dry Riesling won a Gold medal, while the two Casa Larga ice wines mentioned above each won Silver awards, continuing their streak.  The 2009 Tierce, which is actually a winemaker collaboration among Anthony Road Winery, Fox Run Vineyards, and Red Newt Cellars, was also the Wine Spectator Daily Pick on May 23, with a rating of 90.





Meanwhile, Wine & Spirits magazine's "100 Top Values of the Year" edition (June 2012) features Red Newt Cellars, Heron Hill Winery, and Sheldrake Point Winery among the top value producers in a "Cycling the Finger Lakes" section; and Red Newt 2009 Finger Lakes Circle Label Riesling ($12, 93 points) along with Palmer 2009 North Fork of Long Island Chardonnay ($14, 88 points) were among the top 100 value wines.





And...(it never stops), the New York International Wine Competition cited Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars as the New York State Winery of the Year Finger Lakes; and Sherwood House Vineyards as the New York North Fork Wine Region Winery of the Year.  





The many wineries which enter wine competitions and submit their wines to major wine publications for reviews do all New York wineries a favor by elevating the reputation for quality of New York wines.
