It’s no secret that Riesling is one of my favourite white wines. Generally speaking, they are released pretty much the year they are grown, made and bottled. Nothing wrong with that. Who doesn’t like a fresh, spritely, limey, lemony youngster of a wine? As much as I do, I also enjoy Riesling that has been given the opportunity to age.
I’m going to use the word, aromaticity. I don’t know if that’s a word (the squiggly red line appeared underneath it so, not a good sign) but I think this wine has it. Sitting on a nice citrusy base, texture filling out the middle, finishing off with a smooth acidic icing that allows you to have your ‘cellar it’ but also ‘drink it now’ Riesling ‘cake’.
