Bay of Fires, Riesling, Coal River Valley, 2018


Deliciously varietal nose of lime juice, leaf and pith with grapefruit skin, chalky earth and a hint of musk. A near seamless texture from front to back with fleshy lime over grapefruit, richer rose petals and fine minerality. The tail is needle fine and pierces long. Will develop beautifully in the bottle.

RRP: $38.99
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 17.5/20
