Anthony Road Dry Riesling 2015: $18 Good+

The Anthony Road Wine Company Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $18 [Good+] is a tart, clean, well made wine with moderate intensity, but not a lot of intrigue.  It shows better after a day in the fridge, so I would hold on to this bottle for six months to a year before drinking.

Bright light lemon in color, the aromas are tough and tart, with light scents of pear, green apple, citrus and a bit of mineral.  Medium bodied, dry, with high acidity, and a hint of tannin, balance is good.  Hard flavors of tart green apple, lemon, some white peach (after being open a day) and a bit of mineral are bracingly tart, but less so after a day in the fridge.  The finish, like the  flavors, is well balanced but a bit tough, with good length.  July 2015
