Plantagenet Riesling 2011
Mt Barker, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Brilliant very pale straw colour with very light greenish tinge around the edges and watery hue. Freshly squeezed lemon top notes are followed by some lime, steely flint like characters and mineral. On the back palate lemon and lime flavours are followed by some orange rind and steely mineral. Clean crisp acid finish. Aftertaste of lemon, lime, orange rind and mineral. Drink now or cellar 5-6 years.
Vivid, pale green-straw; classic Mount Barker Riesling, with a spine of steely acidity around which the wine is built, the flavours of lime and lemon; its long-term development is as much a certainty as Black Caviar.
