3drops Riesling 2017 ($25)

INTRO
Colour Pale, light and bright Nose Lovely citrus characters of limes and tangerines give a fresh, clean nose. Some subtle talc and floral notes add lift and interest.
Palate
The wine shows delicacy and finesse on the palate. It is crisp and clean and lingers wonderfully in the mouth. The lime is the dominant fruit character on the palate, backed by the floral notes. The natural acidity gives great structure and balance, but still the palate has a tantalizing juiciness.

Early picked Riesling in what was a challenging year in some cases, et here has produced an excellent wine. All crisp acidity and tight lime lines with a trace of lemon zest carrying the palate. Remarkably gentle yet very long with a distinctive spiciness. Score: 92/100 Cellar: 6 years
