A contender for the wine of the Collection first up. Impressive for the youngest and cheapest wine. This is the best Bin 51 I can remember – it will rank with 2002 and 2005, two other stellar Riesling years, but I think might exceed them. This is a brilliant Riesling.
Colour is very pale gold, limpid. An utterly glorious Riesling nose. Spice, chalk, limes, lemon zest. Lifted and fragrant, intense and yet both delicate and balanced. The texture is like crème brulee. There is a gorgeous softness to the wine, fully backed by vibrant, slightly puckering acidity. Great length here and no let up on the intensity as it proceeds. An immaculate young Eden Valley Riesling. Simply stunning.
