Robert Stein Dry Riesling 2022
The fruit for this fine Mudgee Riesling is sourced partly from the Estate’s own vineyard, as well as a number of other local sites. They were all selected with an eye on higher elevation and in each case, a vine age exceeding forty years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressing and then a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks by way of inoculated yeasts. A very pale lemon yellow in colour, this is young but delightfully pungent with aromas of limes, florals, citrus and wet stones with a crisp apple note present throughout. A lovely clean style, as close to dry as anyone could wish, with decent length, through to a gentle fade with a flick of acidity that runs the full length. This should age very well indeed over the next five to eight years.
