1998 Longleat Riesling

Goulburn Valley, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$13.99 Bottle
Minimum 12 bottles
  • Closure: Cork

Bright pale straw colour. The nose displays floral lime and tropical fruit aromas, however, the palate is rather lean and filled with strong citrus flavour, followed by rather precise, razor sharp acidity. Cellar for 3-5 years and allow the acid levels to drop out.

Retasted December 1999

After a couple of fairly ordinary vintages Longleat appears to be getting its act together.Bright pale straw colour with green tinge. Intense citrus, pear, lime and ripe pineapple aromas, followed by a final toasted honey end note. The nose is very impressive. The palate is a little more acuter than the nose suggests and in quite dry with relatively high acidity. The citrus palate flavours are dominant and are followed by some toasted honey on the back palate. A wine that deserves at least another 2-3 years cellaring to allow the palate to catch up with the splendid nose.
