2017 Angullong Fossil Hill Riesling
Wine Rating 
 
87

A light yellow with a fleck of green in the glass as you would expect from a 2017 release, however the nose smells of a wine that has had much more bottle age with a petroleum edge to lime and a touch of lanolin.

The palate has a backdrop of citrus acidity and green apple, there is a honeyed note to the fruit that i wouldn’t have expected at this stage in it’s development with the wine getting lost somewhere between focusing on youthful exuberance and the subtle expressions that comes with age. There is a chalkiness of acidity to finish, but the focus on fruit is missing. Not sure where this will go over time.
