Wine Rating 
 
91

Almost clear in the glass, the nose is a heady mix of orange blossom, lychee and lime cordial. The palate has a fullness with some residual sugar providing a counterpoint to textural acidity. The orange blossom note from the nose is a constant with mandarin and lime fruits filling out the fruit spectrum, a wet slate like aspect frames the finish - A delicious young riesling.

This is the first riesling i have tried from 16 so far, hopefully a sign of things to come !
