Description

The vines grow on slate just beneath very shallow soils and this wine shows all of those characteristics. From the delicate floral and citrus aromas to the slatey, minerally flavours. It’s fresh and lively and has a lovely richness and roundness to finish. It’s pretty and fine – as Riesling should be and it’s drinking very well right now.

Supremely fine and elegant, the wine shows delicate aromas of lemon/lime peel, apple blossom and green tea with a touch of wet limestone on the nose. The palate is focused and concentrated, delivering fabulous fruit purity and vibrancy, brilliantly structured by bright acidity. Restrained, refined and exquisite. At its best: 2020 to 2030.

Precisely articulated, the framework for the future plain to see. Worthy of 5 years, and should be assessed periodically over that time.
