Winemaker's Notes

Neil and Andrew Pike have again produced a stunning, zesty dry Riesling. On the nose there are racy citrus notes with hints of minerals and talc. Take a sip and the intense yet elegant citrus flavors dance on your tongue. Extraordinary length on the finish, no doubt assisted by optimum acidity and lovely slatey mineral notes. Drink now or let this evolve over the next 5 to 8 years into a stunner.
