16 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.

92 POINTS - Cameron Douglas, camerondouglasms.blogspot.co.nz, Oct 2016
“Attractive perfumed bouquet of Riesling with a mix of citrus and stone fruit aromas, ripe and concentrated, white rose and other floral attributes. On the palate - crisp and dry with loads of fresh and refreshing acidity, a hint of spice then tree and citrus fruit flavours, finally a wet stone mineral layer adding charm and depth. Great balance. An aperitif style with just a whisper of sweetness.”
