    Brilliant water like colour with greenish tinged edges. Pronounced lime and lemon zest aromas intermingle with green apple, subtle orange rind, steely notes and flinty mineral. Crunchy lime and citrus flavours dominate the palate with green apple, light talc and steely mineral characters also present. Finishes dry with mouth watering acidity. Excellent intensity with a long zesty lime, citrus and steely mineral laced aftertaste.

    Five clones, hand-picked. Still crystal white 12 months on from vintage; a top flight example of the clarity and purity of Adelaide Hills rieslings from this vintage. The steely acidity at the core of the lime fruit flavours is mouthwatering, the finish correspondingly long. Drink by 2030.
