Review Date : 16-Dec-2017
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with taut and finely concentrated, bright aromas of lime fruit with subtle notes of white florals, honeysuckle and suggestions of toasty nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is tightly bound with an elegantly concentrated core of lime fruit, white florals and minerals with suggestions of honey and toast, The palate is crisp with a fine-textured line of fruit extract and phenolics, with underlying thirst-quenching acidity. The wine has very good linearity and carries to a long, lingering, soft-textured, dry finish. This is a taut and finely concentrated dry Riesling with lime, floral and mouthwatering mineral flavours on a dry, textural palate with good linearity. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, TA 8.2 g/L and pH 3.0.

The nose is very soft and delicate, with beautifully pure aromas of lime fruit, white florals and mouthwatering wet-stone minerals. This is well-proportioned, unfolding in depth and volume with aeration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has restrained fruit flavours of limes, white florals and harmoniously entwined wet-stone minerals.

The flavours carry to a lingering finish with delicate floral and chalky mineral notes. This is a taut, crisp, mouthwatering dry Riesling with pure lime, floral and mineral flavours.
