Great stuff. Plenty of primary lime and citrus zing. Bottle age complexity starting to emerge.

A correct Eden Riesling though without the concentration I would expect (only medium). Still quite youthful (2012) & still without the petrol notes I expect to find even in young Aussie Riesling.

Freshly opened can of Wilson tennis balls, pithy on the finish. Interesting wine for sure.

Vineyard planted in 1912. Unfined and unfiltered. Tremendous value at under $25 retail. 2012 vintage.
