Taylors Promised Land Riesling 2014

I pick up a faint whiff of oxidised apple but there's also some good varietal characters carried by lemons and limes with a splash of honey. Too much sugar here for my liking though and that gets my attention for the wrong reason. In some respects this is the type of Riesling that upholds the old school perception that Riesling is sweet. Although clean with good acidity, I just can't escape the sweetness.

I prefer others at this price point.
