Brilliant water like core with greenish tinged edges. Jumping out of the glass are intense lime, citrus and orange blossom aromas which meld into talc and chalky mineral notes. Scrumptious lime, lemon, orange rind and green apple flavours have a racy feel underpinned by crunchy acidity. Notions of wet steel and flinty minerals linger in the background. Dry chalky finish with a long tense aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews....
A pure, potent and charismatic riesling of intensity and drive. Loaded with briny minerality and wound tightly with green apple and grapefruit zestiness. Opens with fruit characters married to wet fern, ozone and sea spray notes, the palate likewise apple-meets-grapefruit with flinty mineral elements. Flavours extend long and tightly packed with great concentration of fruit, spice and mineral elements. Overall, feels high quality while positing high drinkability. A winner. Drink by 2035.
