Forge Cellars Harvest Ridge Vineyard Finger Lakes Riesling 2014

The first impression is one of petrol and rubber ball on the nose, accented by d’Anjou pear, lemon drop and early spring blossoms. It’s as lean and wiry as I’ve come to expect from Riesling grown in the Finger Lakes region—perhaps even a shade more so—clearly Forge is pushing the envelop in terms of acidity and sheer white grapefruit pithiness. Moreover, the winery ages their Rieslings in neutral oak, an unorthodox practice that yields some interesting results texturally, and also on the back palate. The finish is drawn out, minerally and mouthwatering. .25 RS 12.5% ABV | Sample
