Leeuwin Estate Art Series Riesling 2021

 

Clever. Very clever. A Riesling that is bursting with freshness for now yet has some tension readying itself for later. But I'm happy with it now to wash down some calamari or fresh prawns and some sea spray blowing on my face. Excellent buying for the asking price!

Take a whiff and it is all lemon and lime sorbet. Splice in a glass perhaps? Delicious drinking in the sun, a pinch of grapefruit and licks of green apple add to the pleasure factor. But then it tenses up. Taut, chalky and powdery feels reach long with a minerally undertow finishing with underripe green apple. A super refreshing Riesling now, but gee, it will age gracefully if that's your thing. 

Drink to ten years+
