Riesling

100% Riesling 2017

Description

Ageing:

Stored in tank for 4 months. Bottled early in the New Year to capture its aromatic potential.

Tasting Notes:

A dry Riesling with excellent minerality and vibrant aromas of lime, grapefruit and pear. Racy acidity with lovely purity of fruit. Pithy, persistent finish and magnificent capacity to age. Green and cirtrus fruits gain opulence and slip into stone fruit aromas and flavours the longer aged in the bottle.
