Anthony Road Grüner Veltliner 2015: $22 Good+

The Anthony Road Grüner Veltliner (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $22 [Good+] is a lively Grüner with interesting aromas and light pleasant flavors.  This wine is a good quaffer, but not very intense, so serve it with the lightest of foods.

Light lemon in color, the AR has light and sprightly aromas of wax, kiwi, green apple, celery seed, and a smoky/stony mineral note.  Light bodied, off-dry, with tangy acidity, this Grüner is well  balanced.  Light and lively flavors of kiwi, quince, fennel, celery seed and a stony mineral note are underlined by a medium intense saline streak, giving the wine a mouth watering quality.  The finish, like the flavors, is lively but not very powerful, with a smack of the lips and good length.  September 2016
