Dry River Craighall Selection Riesling 2015

Pale coloured with flecks of green which suggest purity of fruit and brightness of flavour. The nose is tightly wound with concentrated citrus, pithy grapefruit and aromatic Tahitian lime characters. There is also a noticeable touch of pineapple and honey aromas. Befitting this style of wine, we also see a minerality in the form of a struck rock or flint nuance. Whilst the aromatic profile is where some of the interest lies, we feel it is the palate where most of the action is. This release of Riesling ‘Selection’ really does take us on an exploration of the essence of this noble variety. The greatest Rieslings-in this style-pitch a perfect balance between knife edge acidity, residual fruit sugar (70g/l) and relatively low alcohol (8%). The tension created between these three structural components of the wine are a revelation when first experienced. And so it is with this wine-a dry growing season, extremely low crop rates and ripe fruit have accentuated every component of this wine. Enjoy now or lay down for medium to long term cellaring.
