Trevelen Farm Riesling 2008


The remarkable thing about this wine, which is now 13 years old, is its youthfulness. It’s still showing almost primary characters of bright lemon and spice, with the underlying layers of slightly toasty fruit revealing themselves. There is a distinctive minerality here which appears to be a vineyard character, and like all Trevelen Farm wines, there is a fine tight thread through the core. It still has a kick and will hold the line for a few more years yet. Great to be able to grab a mature wine like this.
