Taylors St Andrews Single Vineyard Riesling 2007

Possibly the biggest compliment you can pay to a wine is to drink it and to then want to order more and then drink that too.  Suffice to say, this is an impressive wine.

It has some history behind it coming, off of the historic St Andrews vineyard. At four years it is showing some development with kero and toasty notes amidst some softer citrus elements.

It's quite soft on the nose and it is on the palate where the wine shows its true colours.  There's a touch of weight and depth to the wine in the mouth, entry shows a hint of lime and a tropical note.  There too is a minerally steeliness that segues to a good burst of tart citrus, forming a spine of acid.

The finish shows more tart citrus, pulled through by the acid.  This defines the finish, carrying a wine of impressive length.
