17 Riesling

A youthful wine exhibiting fresh lime, citrus and green apple characteristics with hints of tropical fruits. It’s invigorating acidity supports the lively and crisp structure of the wine presenting floral notes and a strikingly long finish on the palate. Like its predecessors this wine will reward cellaring for the next 4 to 6 years.

Awards

5 STARS - Peter Saunders, Independent Author & Journalist, Oct 2017
“Lovely fragrant style as early as 6-7 months; near dry, aromatic and very well fruited to unfold further through 2018. Very nice sipping as the summer begins to open flavours towards Christmas. Will be a popular favourite.”
4 STARS - Raymond Chan, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Oct 2017
“Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hue, lighter edged. The nose is very elegant with initially delicate and subtle aromas of lime fruit with floral and thirst-quenching mineral nuances. This is refined in expression, and gently blossoms with aeration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a well-proportioned, concentrated core of lime and lemon fruit with white florals, hints of honeysuckle and mouthwatering mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line of fruit extract and subtle phenolics. The wine carries to a long and sustained finish of citrus fruits and florals. This is an elegant and refined dry Riesling with concentrated lime and lemon flavours and mouthwatering mineral notes. Serve as an aperitif, and with Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine over the next 5-6 years.”
