Inspire Moore “Rhythm” Grüner Veltliner 2016: $13 to $19 Good to Good+

The Inspire Moore “Rhythm” Grüner Veltliner (Finger Lakes, NY) $13 to $19 [Good to Good+] has some attractive fruit scents, but the aromas and flavors seem to tire with air.  Length is short.  Drink this wine with snacks.

Pale lemon in color, the overtly acidic aromas show grapefruit, green apple, a bit of peach and hints of smoke and celery seed.  With air the wine turns more savory, with smoky mineral notes in the forefront.  Medium bodied, dry, with above average acidity, balance is OK.  Flavors of grapefruit, green apple, a touch of peach, gravel and smoke have a saline undercurrent.  The finish is tart with average length.  May 2017
