2023 Henschke Julius Riesling
Fourth-generation winemaker Cyril Henschke developed the Henschke reputation for premium Riesling wines as early as the 1950’s from the vineyard areas of Eden Valley, Keyneton and Springton in the Eden Valley wine region.
Brilliant water like colour with highlights of green around the outskirts. Intense lime and citrus scents jump out of the glass followed by talc, hints of orange rind, green apple and chalky mineral notes. Mouth watering lime juice and lemon flavours have a racy feel across the steely palate with notions of Granny Smith apple, orange rind, chalky talc and flinty mineral elements lying underneath. Laser like focus and crunchy like acidity. Finishes long and concentrated with lemon and lime fruits infused with steely mineral characters.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
