The wine is a brilliant pale straw green colour. Aromatically it speaks of the site, the variety and the vintage. At once delicate with white flowers, lemon blossom and lime zest then turning more serious with an undercurrent of stony minerality. On the palate the wine is refreshingly dry with more those lime zest/lemon peel characters that build in complexity in the mouth as deeper, riper fruit fills the mid palate all the time balanced by knife edged acidity. The lees influence adds a slightly doughy sensation that serves to knit the fruit to the acidity effectively masking the barest amount of residual sugar. And remember as great Riesling has the capacity to age, don’t be surprised if it looks great after a decade or so.
