Zugibe Dry Riesling 2015: $16 Good

The Zugibe Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $16 [Good] is very dry, high in acidity, with straightforward flavors.  It is best served with food.

Dark lemon in color, the aromas are chunky and tough, not charming, with light scents of apple, quince, honey and chalky mineral.  Medium bodied, silky, very dry, with high acidity and a tough unyielding mouth feel, balance is good.  Light straightforward flavors are dominated by chalky mineral, with smaller contributions of apple, white peach and lemon.  The finish is balanced, tough, and a bit spicy/bitter, with average length.  August 2016
