Star bright straw gold. Abundant and inviting nose of honeysuckle and honeyed citron. Medium light palate yields layers of orange rind, honeysuckle, dried quince, white pepper (especially on the finish), lime cream, and a host of others. All that flavor added to the medium plus acidity makes for a premier white wine for fine dining. Sturdy enough for medium cheeses or roasted poultry/pork, but with enough finesse for seafood, salads, and lighter fare. Want to experience the upper echelons of white wine without breaking $100? This is your intro. Drink now through 2025. — 17 days ago
1.5 hour decant (little fine/cloudy sediment). A thrilling inky dark ruby red color. On the nose: red cherry, eucalyptus, plum, floral, dried herbs, sandalwood. Taste: smooth, juicy medium plus body wine with dark raspberry, bitter chocolate, cinnamon, black licorice, crushed rocks, and a long pepper minerally dry finish....YUM! Power and precision...ready to go years, but drinking well now with the decant — a month ago
I’m not usually a fan of Australian wines, but this Riesling is very nice and drinkable. Lots of tart lemon, honeydew melon, Granny Smith apple and balsa wood. — a month ago
