Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Cold settled juice is fermented long and cold in stainless steel tanks. Chilled to stop with genuine fruit sweetness.
The palate is taut and sleek with brisk,
crunchy acidity providing energy, tension and linearity.
Penetrating aromas of lime fruit entwined with steely
minerals. Drink now or cellar for a decade or two.
91 points. The Germans would call this a racy wine and would cellar it five to 10 years. The 7.8 grams of acid are balanced with eight grams of residual sugar, just enough to give the wine the palate tension one looks for in a good Riesling. It has aromas and flavours of lime, along with a steely spine of minerals. ~ John Schreiner on Wine
89-90 points. A crisp and raw Riesling with a youthful and masculine bouquet of citrus fruit rinds, peach stones, stainless steel and light, unpasteurized honey aromas. The tart palate offers similar notes showing great consistency from the nose with plenty of tense, lemon/lime and green apple acidity and finishing dry despite the 8g/l of residual sugar. Lingering, lemon thyme and lime zest flavours last through to the last sip. ~ Liam Carrier – Icon Wines
