Stony Lonesome Grüner Veltliner 2014: $12 Good

The Stony Lonesome Estates Grüner Veltliner “Estate Reserve” (Finger Lakes, NY) 2014 $12 Good is a fairly nondescript wine, with good balance but unmemorable flavors and excessive bitterness.  Drink this low-key wine with salads or other vegetable dishes.

Medium lemon in color, the aromas are very light, with subtle scents of lemon, lime, anise and a bitter stony/mineral note.  Medium bodied, dry, with a round silky mouth feel, balance is good.  Flavors of underripe apricot, apple, lime, anise, a strong mineral component and unattractive bitter notes have modest intensity.  The finish is too mineral and bitter, with average length.  October 2016
