ASSESSMENT

Colour: Pale straw with green hues.

Bouquet: A lifted and attractive bouquet showing floral notes of orange blossom and lavender. There are subtle hints of musk stick and passionfruit adding to the complexity and interest of the bouquet.

Palate: A full and flavoursome style Riesling with a rich and balanced palate. The front palate is filled with the floral characters and also the musk stick notes. There is a citrus element which runs the length of the palate and provides a tight mineral structure and a long crisp and clean finish.

REVIEWS 

"93/100  For 18 bucks this is a wonderful Riesling that moves and sways with consummate ease.  Incredibly fragrant with Jasmine flowers leading the charge, touches of lavender, bath powder and pine-lime splice. Some tension evident with chalky feels but it's a refreshing no less. Bright acidity shows some underripe green apple - a wine that leans its way to cutting through fish and chips beachside if you get my drift. A fabulous bargain. Drink now to three years."

"Great to see another wine using the Riesling dryness scale on the back label.
Bright lively citrus aromas, a mouthful of classy citrus flavours with a nice tight lingering finish, will EVOLVE MAGNIFICENTLY!!"  Wine Assist, Dan Traucki, Dec 2018
