Concentrated flavours and ripe, fresh acid create a beautifully balanced expression of low alcohol Riesling. This wine is sweet but the balance as such is that it appears much drier. It is intense and has an ethereal length and cleansing finish that displays all the complexities which makes Riesling such a great variety.

With moreish fruit opulence of limes, granny smith apples and subtle mandarin, this inviting nose is lifted further by florals of orange blossom, honeysuckle and underlying minerals. The palate has lovely fruit concentration and alluring sweetness, refreshed by cleansing acid and a refined mineral backbone. This is a Riesling of purity, free of botrytis and lower in alcohol. Drink well chilled.

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"An energetic yet focused Riesling, our 2016 Spätlese expresses alluring flinty aromas supported by hints of granny smith apples, lime zest and orange blossom florals. The palate is generous and juicy, however it’s the wine’s precise structure that defines it. A sweet, aperitif style Riesling with tasty fruit acidity that leaves the palate cleansed after each mouthful. 78 g/l RS"
Jamie Good, wineanorak.com (2016 Vintage)
"Lovely detail here with nice bright lemony fruit and some sweetness. There’s a hint of melony richness, too. Lovely zippy acidity on the finish, balances out things. So drinkable, with lovely delicacy but also palate weight." 
Rated Outstanding & 92/100 Cameron Douglas, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Distinctive bouquet of fresh picked citrus fruits and green apple, some reductive signs swirl away to leave a sherbet and wet stone mineral layer adding complexity and charm. On the palate - off dry in a sweeter Spatlese style - castor sugar, sherbet, grated green apple and crisp preserved lemon flavours; high acidity and lengthy finish. A delicious wine destined to age for a long time if you can wait long enough. Drink now and through 2030+."
