Brilliant water like core with greenish tinged edges. Intense lime juice, lemon and orange rind scents flow from the glass with some wet steel and minerally notes also evident. Mouth tingling lime, lemon and orange rind flavours flood the mouth underpinned by a vein of racy acidity. Superb concentration and power with notions of faint honeysuckle, chalky talc and steely mineral characters lingering on the back half. Dry crunchy finish with a long scrumptious aftertaste that’s delivered with great precision.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 12%

Other Reviews....
Wild-yeast fermentation, leaving a touch of residual sugar. Riesling is the winemaker's great strength and passion and it shows clearly each vintage. You could drown in the aromatic beauty of the scent: white flowers, lime, green apple, lemon zest, spice and musk. Dry and stylish acidity (it's the only word to describe the combination of bright and soft acidity) caress the palate, mouth-wateringly so. A touch of barely there sugar helps amplify the depth of fruit. A delight. Drink by 2033.
