Radford Eden Valley Biodynamically Grown Riesling 2010

Caveat: this was a leftover sample from tasting in the trade so I'm not necessarily sure how long it had been open for when I got my mitts on it.
 
I tried this twice, once at room temperature when it was suggestive of a touch of oxidative handling with some brown apple supplemented by cut flower.  Chill it down a little and lime, rind, honey and a nod towards to a developmental note came to the fore.

Fuller, broader palate - indicative of some barrel work possibly - not your rapier like, cut and thrust Rizza, this has a fair amount of power to it.  A touch of spice.  Exquisite length.   Power - did I mention that?  93 - Very Good
