2018 Robert Stein Half Dry RS15 Riesling
Wine Rating 
 
94

Jacob Stein is producing some exceptional resiling, with the half dry style one that is hard to get right; but is nailed on this occasion.

The nose enjoys concentrated notes of jasmine, mandarin zest and fresh limes against a backdrop of slate. The decision to leave 15g residual sugar has created a wine that has a mere suggestion of sweetness when contrasted with the energetic swathes of acidity that defines it. Lime dominates with some candied apple like characters from residual sugar on the mid palate, with the interplay of acid and fruit giving a chalky and mineral character to finish.
