And, if you like your riesling minerally and steely, this is a great choice from the Finger Lakes. 

The nose is very slatey with underlying lime and green apple character.

The light-body, lithe palate is a bit more appley, but still very minerally, with more than a lick of slate. There is great acidity here that isn't quite integrated into the rest of the wine and a pithy lime zest note on the finish.
