The Mount Horrocks Cordon Cut, for example, made from riesling grapes that have been left on the vine to shrivel and concentrate their sugar, is unquestionably a wine that can develop and flesh out in the bottle for many years (the rich golden 2005 is still drinking well).

But the 2022 ($42 for a 375ml bottle) is just so ravishing now – all fragrant lime jelly and fresh grapey sweetness and joy – that it’s hard to imagine it providing much more sheer pleasure than it does today.
