Pale straw in colour with green hues, there are intense classic lemon fruit aromas, with a hint of white flowers. Bottle aged characters of toast, clove oil and lemon grass have started to emerge. The palate shows great length and depth with concentrated power, pristine fresh lime juice overlaid with toasted brioche, sage oil and lemongrass. The wine finishes with fresh acidity, balancing the flavour intensity. This wine is released in 2017 after 5 years of bottle age, but will gracefully continue to age for many years for those who appreciate bottle aged Riesling.
Try with Foie Gras or duck breast with five spice glaze or fresh gnocchi with olive oil and shaved truffles.
A warmer than usual winter with lower rainfall; these mild conditions allowed an even bud burst with good shoot growth and fruit set. Rain was welcomed at intervals from November through to harvest, with mild summer conditions and cool nights developing great flavours and acidity.
