Anthony Road Riesling Finger Lakes Semi-Dry 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Delicate floral aromas and a combination of ripe pineapple and melon flavors are just part of the package with this exemplary wine from Anthony Road, which has a talent for making approachable Rieslings. Though the wine has a slightly sweet nature, therersquo;s ample acidity to keep it from falling flat on the palate.

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

Really solid, with good medium-weight feel and concentration to the pear, fig and lime flavors. Therersquo;s a nice lingering hint of anise on the finish. Drink now.

Hints of pear and peach flavors makes this wine a beautiful expression of both grape and style.

Quite juicy, with a lovely mix of yellow and green apple fruit laced with anise and floral notes. The long finish has nice definition. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Definitely sweet, but with enough fresh acidity to carry the intense, apricot-infused palate and finish up with lingering notes of quince, lime and peach. Perfect for Pad Thai.

Off-dry, with tasty, lively peach, banana and pineapple notes that stay focused on the lemon pound cake-tinged finish. Very friendly. Drink now.
