Henschke Julius Riesling 2011

Another very good wine from what is meant to be a rather crap vintage.  Shows the perils of lumping all regions and producers together on this island continent.

Floral aromatics abound, supported by a hint of pear, talcum and hallmark Eden Valley lime citrus.  Quite tight on the palate, generous acid carrying lime through to the finish with  rapier-like thrust.  Nice touch of weight on the palate too, but it's the length, persistence and drive that define the finish.
