Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Riesling 2020

 

Layered and generous, this is a serious Riesling for serious Riesling lovers. Harvested a little later and fermented dry, it's such an expressive and considered wine. Dive in with pike!

Orange peel, cinnamon and lemon pie straight out of the oven, my senses are captivated from the get-go. Add some lime zest and even some candied orange, layers of interest unfurl with ease.

There is a minerally pulse that beats true throughout with the mouth brought to water from the cleansing acidity and a fine grip saluting the finish. Such a fabulous wine, it courses its way at a leisurely pace yet keeps you in the hunt for more. A wine most happily placed beside food but I'm feeling the late afternoon summer vibes by the pool. Classy, sophisticated, memorable, this is awesome.
