A great example of an aged Riesling. Clear, medium intensity and (just) gold in colour – a few pale legs evident. This is a fully developed wine with a clean, med+ intensity nose – minerality hits you first (kerosene / rubber) with grapefruit and perhaps a touch of elderflower following.
Dry, high acid and med alcohol (12%) on the palate, medium bodied with a med+ finish. Medium flavours follow the nose profile with apricot and grapefruit. The crisp acidity provides a clean finish and some lingering minerality.
This is a very good wine (93 points) which should be drunk now – it won’t improve much with further aging. Mid-priced and excellent value for money – a great match with an oily fish or roast chicken. It will even stand up against a desert – the second half of this bottle accompanied a flourless orange cake very nicely indeed! Grab it from Dan Murphy’s while you still can.
