2008 RESERVE RIESLING
Still fresh and bright, showing hints of pale green belying its age. Lime curd and notes of red apple together with macadamia nut suggest some maturity, while fresh green melon, oyster shell and floral notes portray the wines youthful elements - which abound. A delicate, pithy quality on the mid palate helps shape the textural integrity, with bright, beautifully integrated acidity aiding the seamless structure. Portraying generous fruit weight and palate depth, the wine has great drive and definition. Silky, supple and long this wine has years ahead, though drinks like a dream right now. Screwcap.
Please also note this is not a re-release wine. The RESERVE Riesling is made in a slightly different style, from a special selection of rows in our oldest block where we see a particular expression. It is not made every year and was first made in 1999.
