Hentley Farm Eden Valley Riesling 2020

A beautiful, floral, dry riesling from the Eden Valley. The wine is all about citrus and blossom: gardenias and jasmine, rose-scented geranium leaves and lavender, with lemon rind and curd too, and a silky milkiness on the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy and continues the citrus party with lemon peel, grapefruit rind and fresh lime surrounding a mineral stoniness, but with a fleshy and generous mouthfeel – my favourite sort of riesling – and almost sherbet-like prickles of acidity. The finish is long and fresh and absolutely delightful. The joy! I would happily drink this by itself without any food, but if pushed, a little tuna crudo with toasted sesame cracker and wasabi mayo would be just fine, thank you very much.
