Showing lemon and orange citrus tones and a distinct tropical pineapple aroma, while orange blossom, white stonefruit and spice characters abound. Continuing through to the palate these flavours and the spice complexities combine with the structural compounds of acid and phenolics, resulting in a mouth watering wine with a finish that lasts.
Riesling is a preferred accompaniment to a wide range of foods. This wine is especially enjoyable with savoury and spicy dishes, with cheese or simply on its own. Best served lightly chilled, Allan Scott Riesling is guaranteed to improve for many years.
"The 2008 Riesling could do with more fruit intensity on the nose but hopefully that will come with a few months bottle age. The palate is medium-bodied, finely balanced with fresh apricot, hints of passion fruit and pawpaw, moving towards a strict, linear finish. This is elegant but again, give it one year in bottle."
