  • ABV 13.5%
  • Closure: Stelvin

From a younger block of vines planted in 2000, this wine sees a minimum of 8 weeks of lees which lends it its textural quality.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a distinct greenish tinge to the outskirts and a watery hue. Intense lemon and lime aromatics burst out of the glass trailed by orange rind, talc and subtle steely mineral notes. Exceptionally concentrated and mouth filling the palate is awash with ripe lemon and lime fruits which are complimented by notions of orange rind, green apple, talc and flinty minerals. Texturally full with a luscious like feel it finishes dry and crisp with a very powerful, intensely flavoured aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
Surprisingly reticent yet still a delicious rendition this vintage. If anything, it's more subtle, savoury even. Sure it has the hint of lemon blossom, but also wet slate and texture, more phenolic grip, it's riper and all done well. Drink by 2030.

One day this wine will become just ‘riesling’ but it will have to come of age. The vines are legally old enough to drink the stuff that comes off them, now.
It was the summery thirst quencher I couldn’t stop thinking about on the way back from the beach, today. All lemon-lime, sweet green apple, tart acidity, clip of chalky pucker, refreshment factor through the roof, barely there stickiness of riesling fruit and a faint lick of kero or wet hay or something slightly savoury-waxy. Such a treat. Such a good riesling. Drink 2020-2030+
