And this is why we like Riesling, kids. Bracing acidity with notes of lime, coriander, and a teensy bit of petrol starting to show.

Love this wine! Slight rubber hose on nose, high acid, tart citrus, long finish.

“There is so much wine packed into this $34 bottle it must be tasted to be believed- except that when you taste it, you can’t believe it! The cacophony of aromas, the richness of texture, the profundity of the minerality… Everything about it is extraordinary.” - Ian Cauble, SommSelect. Serve at 50°

Wow! A nose that mimics Sauternes—lemon, Brett, honey/beeswax—, but with a classic Riesling petrol quality, leading you to expect a sweet plate, not the case. Palate is dry yet well devolved allowing a rich nuttiness to express itself through the acidity which is high but not at all overpowering.

Bone dry, high acid. Minerality, almonds, hints of lemon.

Nicely acidic with grapefruit and lime. Finishes creamy and a touch of sweetness.
