Green apple, lime, barley sugar and white flowers, a thick and rich texture, cheese rind and lemon rind, but intense lime acidity pulses through it, and there’s grip and energy to go. Finish is full-flavoured, lime cordial, zest and spice, and very long and sure. Almost blows your hair back, which perhaps won’t be experienced by some, but I’m feeling very Barry Gibb in a wind tunnel at present. You can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a Dr. Edge man, no time to talk.

A rich, yet youthful, yellow colour. Almond meal, honeycomb, lemon essence and nougat - the nose is wild and self-assured. A riesling of rare richness and weight. Caramel weaves with lemon essence and lime cordial. A beautiful, dangerously sessionable wine.

Some whole-bunches in the ferment, aged 9 months in oak, an off-dry style and a smorgasbord of flavour with precision. This is Tasmanian riesling after all. A depth of flavour with a raft of citrus, freshly cut green apple, pickled ginger and a splash of lemon barley cordial. It has texture aplenty with some clotted cream across the palate, an assured footing to the very end. Lovely acid line and a delicious drink.
