Shows outstanding lemon and honeysuckle fragrance. The palate is similarly floral in character with great delicacy and excellent length. Paterson agreed. “A wafting, open aroma of florals, lemon zest and talc,” she described. “The palate is tight, linear and the lemony flavours are very intense and pure. Needs time and will age well.” I thought lovers of young Riesling would welcome its youthful characters.
