Nice wine... but 100% not what would consider to be riesling. Not in the fruit tones, not in the acids.

Tight and rough on opening. Much better on day two. I wish I had saved more. Margarita mix, lemon verbena, hint of some sweet fruit, and lots of acid. A bit linear.

Light greeny gold, lemon, heather honey, tickle if spice, dry, good acidity. A plump juicy fruity, mineral mouthfeel which lingers long on the palate. An Aussie treat!

A soft lemon soapiness on the nose, with zippy lemon sherbet on the palate and a slightly pithy but pleasant finish. Decent drinking.
