Keuka Spring Dry Riesling 2014: $15 Good+

The Keuka Spring Vineyards Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) 2014 $15 [Good+] is a lively, pleasant, well-made wine with lighter flavors.  It is a good wine for sipping at your next outdoor party.

Medium lemon in color, with substantial fizz, aromas of lime, pear, apple and a bit of earth are light and lively.  Light to medium bodied, off-dry, spritz-y, with a light mouthfeel and substantial acidity, the KS is well balanced.  Light but pure flavors of apple, pear, apricot and citrus have a notable earthy mineral accent and some mouth watering salinity, which adds appeal to the flavors.  The finish is not very long, but pleasantly lip-smacking.  July 2015
