Bream Creek, Reserve, Old Vine, Riesling, Tasmania, 2018
Pale hue with a green highlight.. So pure and primary. A smidge of age brings richness of honeysuckle and deep citrus. There’s a floral, grassy aspect, like a spring time paddock of fresh low flowers with a beautiful purity. Depth and power beyond most other Rieslings in Australia. Flavour and palate is still so primary with an intensity that can be enjoyed now or for many many years to come.
Rating: 19.25/20 (96/100)
