2012 Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut Riesling
Very pale yellow gold.
Essence of lime, vanilla and spice aromatics.
Beautifully concentrated, complex sweet Riesling, providing bell-clear varietal citrus notes along with stonefruit and attractive florals. Ginger and spice notes dance across the sherbet-like palate which is pristine-clean, light and elegant, bright and long.
Easily one of the best Cordon Cuts of the past decade, it is lighter and more tangy than the 2011, with a year or two more cellaring potential.
Serve with foie gras or similar savoury-toned appetisers or citrus & stone-fruit desserts.
