Brilliant water like core with faint tinges of green around the edges. Lemon, lime and Granny Smith apple aromas jump out of the glass followed by some orange rind, talc and steely mineral notes. Taut and linear yet intensely flavoured, lime, lemon and green apple fruits are framed by a steely core of mineral infused acidity. Some chalky talc elements are also present. Finishes dry and steely with a long, precise laser like conclusion.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
I have a soft spot for this wine – it’s from a region not renown for riesling; I love the green bottle and the John Olsen painting adorning it. It’s also a lovely drink. Fragrant with lemon blossom and jasmine and lightly flavoured with limes and lemons, green apple and fresh herbs. Not at all fruity, it’s dry with mouth-watering acidity, and there’s a cooling stoniness too. Drink by 2033.
