Castelli Estate Riesling 2016
An increased portion of Denmark fruit has been used in this year's Estate release, which has provided an interesting array of flavours and power to the wine. This wine exemplifies the beauty and purity of Riesling showing intense floral/rose petal aromatics with sprinkles of lemon sherbet and lime juice. These flavours intertwine around a focused central citrus core with talcy acidity and a fine minerality. The intense fruit weight provides mouthfeel and the use of cold maceration some texture, to the naturally pristine structure of the wine. Although attractive in its youth this wine will reward cellaring for the next 10-15 years (if you have the patience).
