Wagner “Fathom 107” White Wine 2015: $20 Good

The Wagner Vineyards “Fathom 107” White Wine (Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $20 [Good] is a lean and light wine with modest flavor concentration.  Certainly well made, it does not make much of an impression.

Light lemon in color, lean aromas of lime, lychee, pear, anise, wax, spice, and an earthy mineral note are pleasant but lightweight.  Medium bodied, dry, with a fair amount of peppery acidity, balance is OK.  Modest flavors of lime, lychee, pear, light peppery spice and an earthy mineral note lack intensity.  The finish is uneventful and short.  December 2016

Note: The “Fathom 107” is a blend of Riesling (59%) and Gewürztraminer (41%).
