Tasting Notes: A very consistent Riesling in style vintage to vintage and with its flavour profile from the nose through to the palate. Always a juxtaposition of acid and residual sugar, this rich, concentrated wine offers with a pleasing combination of citrus, honeydew, minerals, pineapple and green apple. What sets this Riesling above many contemporaries is the impressive length - the finish seems to go on and on - and the presence of intricate herbal and floral notes that appreciative noses can spend hours contemplating. The less inclined will simply love the refreshing and tasty balance between the crisp and sweet elements. Something for everyone. Drink now-2017.
