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.
