2017 Raidis Estate The Kid Riesling

I have a confession to make.  It’s been 51 days since my last Riesling post.  There, I said it. Thankfully, lightning didn’t strike me down and I can only think that is because that mighty fellow ‘up there’ is a fan of the variety, knows I love the stuff, and felt it necessary to forgive me.

I’ll be the first to admit to craving for the warmer weather to hurry the bloody hell up! Especially when it’s getting closer to summer.  It’s not helped when wines like this fresh, refreshing, bottle of freshness comes along.

It’s more limes than lemons, citrusy, some zip and zing, and a ‘snap’ of acidity but juicy and soft on the approach.  Not delicate soft, more adds-character-and-a-nice-dimension soft that also adds to the length of this Rizza (I’m not a fan of the word but it’s what’s used these days).  What a delight!!
