Last month we discovered the superb flavours of the 1998 Katnook Sauvignon Blanc, this month another star has emerged - the 1998 Riesling. Great Australian Rieslings are always a balancing act between fruit flavour and acidity. In cooler years the acid levels become dominant and some wine makers say wait until the tertiary flavours develop or in other words wait until the acidity begins to drop out. In recent years the exceptionally high acid Riesling styles have been questioned, particularly from American buyers, who claim to prefer fruit to acid. The 1998 Katnook Riesling is a great example of the variety. Bright straw colour. Delightful lime citrus nose followed by spicy floral pear overtones. The palate is mouthfilling with its flavours of fresh citrus, spice and pear which are supported by a hint of tropical fruits and limes. Clean refreshing acidity, but totally balanced with the fruit, followed by a very long citrus, lime aftertaste. Cellar 3-5 years.
