Leeuwin Estate Art Series Riesling 2016

Leeuwin Art Series Riesling has reached loftier heights.

Quite a minerally expression here. Aromas aren't as perfumed and uplifting as previous vintages. Sure there's citrus zest, lemongrass and some pith but I walk away feeling a bit wanting to be honest. Riverstone minerality prominent in the mouth. Some texture evident but doesn't clinch the deal. The finish tart - not too dissimilar to a slightly underripe green apple.

Would I buy it? Not this vintage.
