Colour: Brilliant, pale green.
Aroma: Pristine aromas of kaffir lime and lemon initially, hints of bath powder / perfume kick in then with subtle slatey/stony notes bringing up the rear. Delicate, but powerful at the same time if that makes sense.
Palate: Crisp, fresh and brimming with the citrus fruits mentioned above. Terrific balance between bright fruit, mouthwatering acidity and talc like texture. The line and length of this wine are to be admired.
Summary: Terrific example of “The Merle”. It will appeal immediately to those who like crisp, young Rieslings, but for those who like the type of complexity that only bottle aged Riesling can provide, cellaring for 7 -12 + years is recommended.
