Winetype:

Time of release

Very flippantly: very floral, very citrusy, very crisp and dry, very good! This easily meets the expectations of Jasper Hill Riesling drinkers with its intensity. Can be cellared if you wish. Sadly, only 300 odd cases made. 12.5% alc/vol.

Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW – August 2007

Medium pale colour. Fresh herb garden/ lemon grass aromas. Sweet lemony/ pear flavours, marked acidity. Crunchy apple finish. Very minerally and dry. Now-2010. 90 points.

Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW – 17th August 2012

Medium colour. Intense developed, baked lemon, butterscotch aromas with some brassy notes. Palate is well concentrated with deep set lemon curd, oilskin, butterscotch, nutty flavours, bitter textures and strong acidity. Still has fruit sweetness but starting to reach over-development. Best to drink now or soon. Now – 2016 87 points

Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW – 8th August 2017

Medium colour. Baked lemon, lime, cumquat aromas with toasty butterscotch notes. Generous and supple with developed sweet fruit flavours, some flinty butterscotch, oily notes, fine looseknit chalky textures and lemon bitters finish. Still has energy, buoyancy, complexity and persistency. Very good but drink soon. 12.5% Alc 94 points – Now
