Classic Riesling expressing definitive notes of flint and wet stone accompanied by lemon, lime peel, honeysuckle notes that start on the nose and transcend onto the palate. The zippy acidity gives the wine a serious quality that makes you pay attention yet is supple enough to remind you how much you love Riesling. A long clean finish persists. Drink now to enjoy the vibrant acidity and fresh citrus notes or hold for 5 to 10 years for the almond, straw and wild honey notes to develop.
This connoisseur’s wine ticks all the boxes — balanced, clean, concentrated, complex and long. This medium-sweet, aromatic expression starts with the fragrance of salted lime sorbet then floods in with lit, citric zeal. A rush of silky, statured goodness that calls to mind lime sorbet, juicy Granny Smith, a touch of orange pith and cool stony underpinnings that linger flavour wise and texturally for ages.
