Fulkerson Dry Riesling 2016: $13 Good

The Fulkerson Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) $13 [Good] is a medium dry wine with a bright citrus-y character and a good deal of peachy fruit.  Bitter notes in the aromas and flavors detract from its quality.  Drinkers who are unaffected by bitter flavors will probably be more entranced by the fruit, and rate this wine somewhat higher.  Sip this Riesling with snacks.

Medium straw in color, the bright aromas have a citric tang, with scents of lemon, lime, peach and a bitter green note.  Medium bodied, medium dry,  with a soft mouth feel, balance is good.  Solidly intense peachy fruit is accented by citrus, wet wool, and a bitter green note.  The bitter notes persist in the finish, with good length.  July 2017
