Lamoreaux Landing Dry Riesling 2014: $15 Good+

The Lamoreaux Landing Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) $15 [Good+] is a tart citrus-y Riesling.  Too bracing to sip, it is best served with food.

Light bright lemon in color, the nose is acidic, a bit raw, with aromas of lime, grapefruit, apple and hints of mineral and earth.  Medium bodied and off-dry, this wine is full of tart acidity, making balance a bit precarious.  Medium-intense tart flavors of apple, lime, grapefruit, anise and citrus zest are lightly touched by bitter and earthy/mineral notes.  The finish is quite tart and bracing, somewhat bitter, with good lip-smacking length.  November 2015
