Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling 2011

This, one of Australia’s top sweeties, is renowned for its fleetness of foot and bell clear purity of zesty lime fruit.  In 2011, a touch of botrytis brings the texture and tang of wild honey and salted limes.  With its marvellous synergy of sweet, savoury and sour, it’s compellingly complex, long and lingering.  Ab fab –  the best yet, despite having just been flown over (with Toole) and used as a door stopper at her hotel!
