2016 ‘Traditionale’ Riesling

Colour

Brilliant pale green colour

Aroma

Pristine aromas of lime, lemon and grapefruit dominate initially, with some gentle floral notes kicking in behind these. Maybe just a suggestion of wet slate/stones too.

Palate

Fresh, crisp and dry as it always is upon release. Finishes clean and dry with just a hint of textural grip.

 

 

Summary

Traditionale always makes a terrific drink upon release, but 5 -7 years in the cellar will amply reward those who like their Rieslings with some bottle age. Drink with any seafood or white meat (of course), but it does work admirably with gruyere cheese too.
