Neil Pike says that after 40+ years of making Watervale Riesling, you learn a thing or two, hence the name The Learnings. Limefinger is his retirement project, and if you love Riesling you ought to race to the front of the queue. This is exceptional.
Like walking through a garden of white flowers, this is aromatically stunning. Lime juice and a little lemon run their course but it's the crisp green apple and the whip crack of acidity that smashes the brief. Talc feels, the poise and balance are thrilling. A little citrusy tang clings on as the parting gift. Watervale has proven a perfect 'drink now' Riesling with Polish Hill River showing better aging capabilities. But for now, give me another and pronto. Just brilliant!
Drink now but will age 5+ years
