Inspire Moore Grüner Veltliner 2014: $13 Very Good

The Inspire Moore “Rhythm" Grüner Veltliner (Finger Lakes, NY) 2014 $13 [Very Good] is a round flavorful wine that has a kinship to Sauvignon Blanc.  It is a very good buy.

Bright light lemon in color, the nose is pungent — full of grapefruit, citrus zest, smoky mineral notes and some underlying stone fruit.  Medium bodied, silky, slightly viscous, the “Rhythm” is very mouth filling and has that gentle/mellow character so typical of Inspire Moore.  Flavors of lemon, green apple, grapefruit, white pepper and anise have very good concentration and a strong saline underpinning.  The finish is gentle, with very good length.  July 2015
