This wine is quite pale, displaying a fragrant bouquet of flowers, lemongrass and sweet passionfruit. The flavours are focused and refined, reminding me once again of lemongrass and limes with a touch of passionfruit pulp, and with a finish reminiscent of wet riverstone. I am guessing this to be a medium-term Riesling with a drinking window of 3-6 years, but it will need to be re-evaluated around 2008.
Two we have tried recently are ’89 and ’94 – both to my palate quite exciting – and ’88 which was our first ever Riesling is still in good shape. Note that good cellaring conditions are essential for good results.
