2017 Castle Rock Estate ‘A & W’ Reserve Riesling

I know you are used to me starting a review with some sort of story or carry on about something or ‘other, but not this time.  I simply need to cut to the chase with this Riesling.

Magic.  Pure magic.  This is delicious!  The best three tonnes of Riesling fruit from the Estate vineyard has produced a superlative wine.

An intense citrussy nose is a terrific introduction.  The flavours are clean, varietal, spot on and just as intense.  More limey than lemony but both play a significant part in proceedings.  It’s minerally and the acid is pure and lively.  Throw in a deft touch of texture, a mouth-watering and long finish and, as I said before, magic!  A definite ‘Wow’ factor wine for me with a great future.
