- The Wine
Retasted 2015: This wine has matured into a much lighter Riesling than you might expect, but it still does not disappoint.
Quite a light nose with paraffin and green apple at the forefront. A little limey citrus shows behind. The honeyed tones have flattened somewhat which makes it very interesting and not typical at all. It took me a while to decide whether it is past its best, or just entering a new phase of development. I tend towards the latter.
It still returns flavours of green apple and plenty of citrus acidity, but the zinginess has matured into almost the flavour of the grapes themselves – very interesting indeed!
Ben says (August 2016): Well, having tasted this last year with some uncertainty, I was returning to this wine with some trepidation. Last year it was hard to decide which way this wine was going. Not any more! This has blossomed into a really lovely mature Riesling with far bolder flavours than a year ago. It is more than interesting. I love this wine. It hits all the right spots for me as a wine to drink on its own or with oily fish. I am craving Mackerel with this wine.
Ben says (July 2018): This wine seems to be immortal! It is still as fresh and glorious as it was in 2016. Mature Riesling pretending to be young!
Flo says (July 2018): Beautiful petrol nose falls into a beautiful citrus. The maturity of the wine comes as a surprise. Highly recommend!
I would recommend grabbing this now while it is still here!
Serving Suggestions:A good companion for freshwater fish, seafood and also white meats/poultry.
