Gundog Estate, Riesling, Canberra District, 2019
Waif like in the glass, almost water clear with a hint of shine. Pure aromas with elements of light lime citrus and an almost a riper note of mandarin. Fairy Floss/Cotton Candy, Buerre Bosc pear, chalk and quartz all feature. A precise palate: tight without being shrill, delivering white rocks, flowers and puckering citrus juice to play their part up front with a little generosity before, wraith-like, it departs leaving the texture and acidity to haunt long. Delicious.
