A blend of 3 estate vineyards, this highly aromatic Riesling offers nice petrol, citrus, Flintstone vitamins and some mineral. The palate has nice citrusy, tart lemon and golden apple flavours with just a touch of sweetness due to the high acids. The finish length is very good. Tasted Oct/2016.

A fine organic Bench Riesling from Hidden Bench. Aromatic intensity with green apple, pear, lime and plenty of minerality. On the palate the acidity is bright, fruit is citrusy- tart and length is excellent. Well priced to boot. Nov. 2016.
