It took me what seemed like ages to get started on this review. I didn’t know where to start. The issue was, it is such a beautiful, delicious Riesling that I wanted to make sure I did it justice in words. Here goes.
It starts off with mouth-watering, floral and citrusy aromas. Plenty of lemons and limes then grapefruity acidity touches down on the palate. Subtly powerful and fresh, rich and juicy with a long dry finish. Probably the shortest description I have ever written, but it seems appropriate to be so precise…just like this Riesling.
As much as Mitchell Rieslings are known to age without a hiccup, this is also a mighty good wine at such a young stage of its life and at this price, it should be a cellar staple.
