2016 YOUNG VINES RIESLING
After 12 years of making this wine, we continue to see a structural and textural difference between our older vines and the younger block (planted 2000) and so we continue to make the ‘young vines riesling’, now identifiable to so many of our clients. 2016 was a larger vintage after 2 very small crops however with no less flavour intensity. So we are thrilled to release this wine for Summer drinking.
Delicate citrus flowers and lime zest lead this youthful wine. Only at the beginning of a long life, it shows fresh white stone fruit and chalky texture on the rounded palate. Clean, taut acidity balance the wine and contribute to its very good persistence.
