Wine Review

Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues. The nose is very fine and tight in expression with intense aromas of lifted citrus fruits integrated with toasty notes and a steely, fresh, minerally element. Dryish to taste, an amalgam of limes and toast forms a tight and concentrated core with a degree of richness and lusciousness. The palate has harmony and flows smoothly, with lacy acidity providing a slippery mouthfeel. The flavours open out and become softer and lighter on the finish. This is a tight and concentrated off-dry, slippery Riesling beginning to show some harmonious toasty development characters. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood and poultry over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from 1 ha on an eastern slopes of the vineyard that receives the last sun of the day. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel yo 13.0% alc. and 10 g/L rs. Winemaker: Christopher Keys.
