Robert Stein Half Dry Riesling 2015
Twenty percent was fermented on skins, wild fermented and then momentarily housed in older French oak.
Pretty citrus flower aromas and bright limes leap from the glass. There's a hint of ripe green apple too. A taste of this almost appears to have a two phase attack. Dry initially, it's as though a partition is then pulled back and the sweetness is revealed. Crunchy acidity then takes hold. Delicious weight courtesy of the barrel fermented component lingers long. Clean and crisp to finish with a lick of sweetness.
I loved it. Smart juice.
