REVIEWS & ACCOLADES
19+/20 Raymond Chan
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light lemon-green hues, paler on the rim. The nose is aromatically rich with intense, ripe lime fruit melded with exotic jasmine florals along with nuances of sherbet and minerals. The depth and tautness,along with penetration and intensity is a feature. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has rich, bright and intense flavours of lime fruit entwined with white and yellow florals, jasmine elements, and sherbet and minerals. The mouthfeel is lively and zesty revealing enrichening honied elements. The wine flows along a fine line of fruit extract and textures with plenty of energy and drive, carrying to a long, sustained, racy finish of exotic citrus and floral notes. This is a brisk and racy dry Riesling with exotic citrus and floral fruit along with sherbet, honied and mineral nuances on a fine-textured linear palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 5-6 years. Predominantly clone 239 fruit, with no botrytis, from three high sloped sites, two with limestone and one with clay, hand-picked, given a short skin soak, WBP, and cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 4.72 g/L RS, TA 5.9 g/L and pH 3.33, the wine undergoing batonnage.
