Time of release
Simply the best since out first in ’84. For those who like their Riesling dry, this is it. Obviously youthful, its colour exhibits a light green tinge with a floral/lime aromaticity that believes its crisp acid, dry palate. A great match now with a delicate dish (how about plain boiled yabbies) this wine like previous releases, will flesh out in time. Cellar potential 3-5 years.

Medium pale colour. Developed tobacco. Verbena, baked lemon aromas with oily notes. Fresh developed tobacco, baled limes, bitter lemon fruit, a touch of grilled nuts, fine chalky textures and fine marked acidity. Seems more youthful and expressive. Past its prime but holding remarkably well. 11.5% Alc88 points – Now- past
