Slight green tint, which suited the vibrant aromas of citrus, predominantly lime, as well as white peach, honey, and lemon zest.

Off-dry on the palate, herbed honey nicely strong mid-palate, with a medium+ length. Nice acid balance. Some bitter almond on the finish, with citrus zest staying all the way.

I think some added complexity after an extra year in cellar. Won't develop much over the long haul, but great value.

Tasted March 2016.

A bit of an unremarkable riesling; the wine lacked significant depth of flavour that would be expected from a late harvested grape.

aromas of golden apples, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, honey, and a touch of pineapple. Some minerality as well. The citrus and honey are more prominent on the palate, along with a hint of pear. Fairly good length. Off-dry, with crisp acidity to balance. Balance would be better if the alcohol was 1 or 2% lower, to make it more crisp and refreshing.
