    Laden with concentrated lime and citrus fruits, this is a texturally expressive Riesling that demonstrates great power

    A brilliant water like core is surrounded by a luminous green tinged outskirts. Intense lime and green apple aromas meld into citrus and orange rind notes followed by a steely minerality. Mouth watering, the palate is bristling with concentrated lime and lemon flavours which overflow into orange rind, subtle talc, wet steel and mineral characters on the driving finish. Powerful with fresh crunchy acidity and a long drawn out aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 6-8 years.
    Alc. 13.5%

    Other Reviews…..
    From the '75-'77 planting, crushed and whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented with cultured and wild yeast, 3 months on gross lees. The bouquet is a butterfly, moving from flower to flower so quickly it's hard to keep up with the citrus blossom, rose petal and wild flower only part of the story. The palate crystallises the citrus component with nerve-tingling acidity. Drink by 2033.
