Anthony Road Riesling Finger Lakes. Martin Reinhardt Selection 2008

External Review:

Rating: 96/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. 23% residual sugar. Wines of this concentration are few and far between, especially those that are so loaded with energetic fruit underneath their substantial sugars, yet here is a wine that has pulled if off in a manner that adds its name to the exceptional wines of the world. So surprisingly light on its feet that it initially offers suggestions of mint as part of its aromas and flavors, it adds in notes of honey, mandarin orange and white peach along the way and is impeccably balanced, long and lusciously layered. 375 ml bottling.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Ann grew up in Rochester, New York and the New York City suburbs of New Jersey; John grew up in the same New Jersey suburbs. After working in teaching (Ann) and Peace Corps and business (John), they moved to Yates County in 1973 to grow grapes and raise their family on 100 acres overlooking Seneca Lake. Ann managed the vineyard and raised the children, while John worked for Cornell University at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. The grapes from their vineyards were first sold to the Taylor Wine Company and eventually to wineries across New York State. In 1990, Ann and John Martini opened Anthony Road Wine Company with wines made from the 1989 crop. The first building was a renovated farm shop and the equipment was at best an eclectic collection of used and borrowed tanks and pumps and an old apple press. Their children, Peter, Sarah, Maeve and Elizabeth, have been involved in the vineyard and winery throughout their growing years and beyond. Peter and Elizabeth are now full-time employees of Anthony Road Wine Company. The joy of growing grapes and producing fine wines still motivates and excites the Martini family…more than a quarter-century after the first vines took root. Read less
