Pale golden appearance, this is a very aromatic Riesling from the Eden Valley sub-region of Watervale. A lovely perfume opens up which is coated with fresh lemons. There's something about Watervale Riesling which just hits the spot, and the more I have them, the more I'm drawn to them.
Flavours are clean and crisp. Green apples are abundant. I thought there was a slight sweetness first up but this disintegrated quickly. Typical citrus characters bounce around closing with a lemony zip. There is a fine cleansing acid finish - a talc like feel.
An impressive Riesling, and although some may baulk at the price ($40), the pennies outlaid will pay you back handsomely.
Perfect for drinking now and will reward cellaring easily to the long term.
Track it down - widely available through independent and chain retailers.
