How awesome is this wine! I'll tell you how. Maturing beautifully, this is a superb example of how dry riesling should be standing the test of time. Pure, precise citrus elements shine through creating an intensely clean wave of flavour across the palate and zingy acidity compliments the classic honeysuckle, hints of mandarin, racy lime and lemon and green apple flavours that we all seek in great riesling. So fresh and frisky it’s outstanding with crispy five spice pork salad.

I love the way pepper plays in this wine, with kaffir lime-like spice and crunchy granny smith apple notes that infuse it with particularly lively and fresh poise, even at two years of age. A pristine fruit profile hovers long and clean amidst fine, mineral acidity, with subtle sweetness tucked neatly into its folds. Hand picked from one hectare of vines, the story goes that the sun’s last rays linger here, contributing to slow ripening and intense fruit flavours. It seems the tale is as romantic as the result.
