Valentine Riesling 2016

A glass of this and sand crab lasagna and life is good. Riesling to sink your teeth into.

From the 21 year old vines of Gordon's Vineyard in Dixon Creek, this comes across bunchy and textural yet has an arm of grace and elegance to please. Whole bunch pressed, one third went to old puncheons and the remainder stainless steel where wild fermentation was allowed to take place.

Get knee deep in full mouth coverage, well-managed acidity and delicious fruit highlighted by lemon curd, poached apple, white fleshed stone fruit and some vanilla creaminess. The finish is long and curvaceous - great stuff.

Drink now but will age gracefully if that's your thing.
