Please note the bottle image is of the usual packaging but for this year, the 2022 is in green. I’ve been assured that it was simply human error and not a change in direction and 2023 will be back to brown/amber bottles!
Longview, Macclesfield, Riesling, Adelaide Hills, 2022
Stone and lime pith. Bittersweet grapefruit with richer tropical feijoa nuances (there’s some strong signature lines to this wine). Pink salt balanced by a a honeyed blossom. Wonderfully balanced with the right amount of mineral, steely spine, richness of citrus fruit and precise acidity. The salinity drives the salivation and yet the mind is deceived by having the thirst quenched.
Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
