Peconic Bay Vineyards, North Fork of Long Island (New York) Riesling 2020

($28):  Move over Finger Lakes.  Here is a terrific Riesling from Long Island.  It delivers a masterful blend of delicate fruitiness — think subtle peaches — offset by zesty acidity.  Clean and pure, it gives the impression of sweetness, then it disappears.  Their website says the grapes come from their Home Vineyard and are some of the oldest Riesling vines on Long Island.  Whatever the origin of the grapes, someone in the winery did a superb job of translating them into a delightful Riesling.  The delicate honeysuckle-like flavors are a perfect foil for spicy seafood dishes or sushi.
