Notes

“Riesling from the King Valley that spends 30 days on skins. It opens up with whiffs of consommé, let’s say saline and slightly savoury with lemon zest and clove-spiked orange following. Very crisp on the palate, rolls along and fine on salty tannins. There’s a carpet of citrus, green apple and preserved lemon and the wine feels tight, very refreshing and very refined as a skin contact wine. An outstanding example of the style and one that will mature gracefully gaining savouriness and complexity.” MB- Gourmet Wine
