Time of release
Crisp, dry and very flavoursome, with the usual dominance of lime and lemon citrus characters in aroma and flavour. Delightful green tinge to the colour. For lovers of Jasper Hill Riesling, this one is a "beauty", from a climatically perfect vintage. 12.5% alcohol.

Medium deep brassy colour. Intense amontillado, salty, baked lemon aromas. Rich and creamy with developed amontillado, nutty complexity, a touch of varnish, fine chalky bitter textures and long metallic-like acidity. Fully mature and on the downward curve but still approachable to drink.12.5% Alc 88 points – Now = past
