2017 Lyons Will Estate Riesling
(Updated: January 16, 2018)
Wine Rating 
 
93

The region is well known for Riesling with Granite Hills the exemplar and a number of fine releases coming from Zig Zag Road and Hunter-Gatherer Vinters over the last couple of vintages.

The wine was produced from estate fruit, basket pressed and aged in old oak. A little residual sugar was kept in the wine but it’s slinked into the background doing its job providing a counterpoint to the wines mineral, taut acidity.

A nose of jasmine, lime and the faintest touch of picked ginger. The palate has beautiful balance with slate like acidity giving impressive lines, in terms of citrus fruits the wine very much sits on the lime side of the spectrum. There is a chalkiness to finish with flashes of jasmine returning to add complexity.

There were only 740 bottles made from young vines. The future looks good for this variety from one of the regions impressive new producers.
