An exceptionally powerful and intensely flavoured Riesling with sizzling acidity lending laser like precision.

Sourced from two sites on the Forest Hill Vineyard with vine age of 20 and 48 years old respectively. Brilliant water like colour with greenish toned edges. Lime and lemon scents jump out of the glass followed by some orange rind, wet steel and chalky mineral notes. Crunchy lime, lemon and Granny Smith apple fruits engulf the mouth providing it with good textural volume which is counterpointed by sizzlingly crisp acidity. Some wet steel, orange rind and flinty mineral characters linger through the long, concentrated and zippy finish.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 12%

Other Reviews…..
A blend of Block 2 (planted 1975) and the youngest Highbury Fields site. Its lime and apple blossom fragrance leads the way for the palate with a delicate framework of acidity. The overall balance and length can't be faulted.
