Straw-coloured visuals lead to citrus fruits; namely lemon zest, lime juice and cut-apple aromas. On the palate we have lively, fresh, crunchy fruits; think Nashi pears. The 2017 Riesling gives zingy acid, long, clean, bone-dry finish with citrus tang of drive and intensity. 

There is a power of citrus fruit packed into this wine. Fruit only from our Certified Biodynamic Vineyard at Red Hill, it does not get any better than this, what a classic year.

Estate-grown grapes only.
