DRY RIVER RIESLING CRAIGHALL 16/17

DRY RIVER RIESLING CRAIGHALL 16/17

"The result of the 2017 Riesling is nothing short of stunning, and a testament to the hard work by our vineyard team. White peach, ripe floral notes and mineral freshness show a dynamic between power and restraint. Rose’s Lime cordial, hints of nougat with orange and mandarin flesh and fennel and clove spices, would almost suggest this is Pinot Gris. At the same time, it is unmistakably Riesling. A small amount of residual sugar, five grams per litre, offers an appropriate entrance for the tropical fruit like pineapple, and even mango. So much of this wine is texture though. A voluptuous densely packed palate with texture and fruit weight makes a real statement. A friendly acidity salivates and draws the attention to the mid palate. Here, orange and grapefruit rind with citrus fruit dominate their space. The distinct linear acidity builds the palate up to a seamless long finish. Expect this wine to cellar well in a good cellar, best to drink after four to seven years."
