Riesling cellars well, and good examples can be very long lived. In my view our dry Rieslings are food wines rather than for drinking by themselves. When young they can be austere in flavour and should be cellared prior to drinking. Our 1995 wine is no exception. It has classic Riesling citrus characters on the nose, and firm, dry, even powerful citrus and mineral flavours on the palate which beg for time to fill out and soften to show the typical developed Riesling characters. This Riesling crop was drastically thinned well before harvest to provide the wine with extract and potential. Its low pH (2.8) contributes to its cellaring style, and promises elegant and focused flavours as the wine matures. It is an excellent food wine style particularly suited to more delicate-flavoured foods which are at risk of being swamped if accompanied by higher alcohol wines. Cellar 3 - 6+ years depending on cellar conditions.
