Castle Rock Estate A W Reserve Riesling 2017
The A W Reserve comes from the best three tonnes of Riesling off the Castle Rock Estate vineyard. Handpicked, whole bunched pressed and left on light lees for two months, they've nailed it!
Precise and etched with class, pretty white flowers, citrus flower and grapefruit aromas slowly diffuse from the glass. There's a slight hay like aroma, too, which I put down to the time on lees. In the mouth, it's lemons all the way. Shades of preserved lemon warm up and stroll on by. A chalky textural presence is preceded by deft minerally feels. A sleek and focused acidity shapes the palate beautifully. Oh yeah - such a pretty wine. Superb really.
Drink now but this will age gracefully for many years to come.
