Auldstone Cellars Riesling 2010

This was a pretty impressive package. I love coming across wines from small operators who do something a little different.

Glenrowan is of course better known for Ned Kelly and not Riesling, and this was a welcome surprise.

Only two years old from the 2010 vintage, the wine was clearly into the bottle age stage of development.

Deep golden colour, plenty of citrus, honey and preserved lemon characters on the nose. You could be fooled for thinking this was at least twice the age.

Generous lemon and citrus flavours on the palate highlighted by soft acid, yet the wine was complex and finished with a ever lasting length.

Stands up to the Riesling kings of South Australia.
