Karra Yerta Wines Eden Valley Riesling 2008

I bought a heap of these some time ago when the winery was closing its operation and all stock was being thrown out at crazy prices. All stock has since sold out.

This Riesling comes from 80 year old dry grown vines which were hand picked.

Bang in the middle of its drinking window, this has aged beautifully.

Kero lights the flame, preserved lemons and a dollop of honey. The palate is filled with dense fruit and some textural interest leading to a long finish. Better still, there's plenty of life left in it and I'm pretty pleased I've got a lot more in the bank.

Very good.
