A very perfumed and floral nose with some petrol for this mature vineyard estate Riesling. Citrus dominates with pear and honey. It's a richer off-dry style with a slightly viscous mouthfeel. Lemony acidity provides backbone and length is excellent. A great value. Feb. 2015.

Medium+ intensity aromas of petrol and sweet florals, along with minerally notes of slate and wet rocks. Medium-to-full bodied palate is off-dry and well-balanced with nice aroma replays, plus hints of Flintstones vitamins. Crisp, balanced acids and long, mineral-driven finish. Tasted Sept/2014.

Great Riesling. Paired it with a roast turkey and honey glazed ham for Easter and it complimented perfectly. Great nose of wild flowers, pear and green apple. Acidity was tart but not overbearing.
