Brilliant water like core with a subtle tinge of green around the outskirts. Intense lime, lemon and Granny Smith apple aromas jump out of the glass followed by some chalky talc and steely mineral notes. Zesty lime, citrus and Granny Smith apple flavours are underscored by searingly crisp acidity. Finishes very dry and steely with chalk and flinty mineral elements lingering through the long snappy finish.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
The 2023 Skywalk Riesling leads with a distinctly talc-y, mineral nose. It has all the delicacy and ephemeral nuance in the mouth as well. Despite its levity, it is long and persistent through the finish, spooling off into the distance, with white tea, jasmine, green apple skins, scratched lime zest and what feels like a million other tiny characters ... like pulverized confetti. It's such a pleasure to drink this. It's pure and crystalline. Drink 2023-2033.
