Anthony Road Dry Riesling 2016: $18 Good+

The Anthony Road Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $18 [Good+] is certainly distinctive, with a near-sour nose and an abundance of lemon oil, lime and citrus zest.  It is probably a wine that would divide a group of wine tasters.  Serve with snacks or dinner.

Medium lemon yellow in color, there are aromas of lime, lemon oil, dried apricot, pear, citrus zest, and a sour note.  Medium bodied, medium dry, with a relatively unstructured mouth feel, and high acidity, balance is OK.  Flavors of lime, apple, dried apricot, citrus zest and an earthy mineral note have good concentration.  The finish turns toward its citrus zest and sour notes, with good length.  January 2018
