Anthony Road Dry Riesling 2019
This wine is a blend of many different fermentations, each one acting as a building block to create a powerful expression of dry riesling with aromas and flavors of tangerine, apple, pineapple, ginger and white lily.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Explosive sliced-pear, white-peach and white-flower aromas. Lip-smacking acidity and very juicy, white tree-fruit character on the sleek and focused palate. Long, super-clean finish with plenty of wet-stone character that’s really uplifting.
The 2019 Dry Riesling comes in with 8.1 grams per liter of residual sugar, 8.63 of total acidity and 12% alcohol. There is a tiny dollop (2%) that was in neutral French oak for six months. Superb this year, this is focused and penetrating, tight and pure. With a big, tense and precise finish, it adds an almost unctuous texture for a Dry Riesling. This is quite a bargain, and it should age well throughout the decade, probably more.
Intense aromas of lime peels, fresh thyme and kerosene carry to the medium-bodied palate. A slightly candied citrus peel flavor chimes in, but a pithy texture and a savory note of crushed salt lend ample balance. It ends dry, savory and lifted, delivering a zesty Riesling that will play well at the dinner table.
