Bethany Blue Quarry Riesling 2022


From the Flaxman Valley sub-region of the Eden Valley, this is a cracking follow-up to the superb 2021. Pale lemon hue with flecks of lime green, this is taut, restrained, poised and yet retains a sense of gentleness. Notes of citrus, limes, florals and freshly baked lemon meringue pie. Elegant and delicate with good focus and direction on the palate, it is considerably richer than the nose might suggest. Hints of peaches with the citrus notes make for a lingering finish. Nicely balanced, with a fine line of acidity, this will drink well over the next six to twelve years. A very fine Eden Valley Riesling.
