2012 Merle Reserve Riesling

Colour

Brilliant pale green

Aroma

Absolutely pristine citrus aromas of lime, lemon and grapefruits with our usual slatey/flinty mineral notes. Typical Merle.

Palate

Finely structured and quite subtle, but with a real purity of fruit that  is tightly wound around a spine of crisp, mineral acid which is providing length and a little texture to the wine.

Summary

From an ideal growing season this beauty from 2012 shows everything we expect to see from a Polish Hill River Riesling. Can be cellared for 10-15 + yrs due to being safely bottled under the screwcap closure.
