Taylor's Estate Riesling 2013

Tasted single blind (the identity is known but is hidden when being poured) in a bracket of Rieslings: 3 2013 releases from Taylor's and a 10 year that was included for extra colour - literally

Aromatically pronounced - almost forward. Lemon, kumquat  faint salts, a touch of mandarin. Veering more towards the 'orange' citrus range. Day two sees the tropicals more pronounced.

Sherbetty, mineral, quite open - as compared to tight and coiled, lemon sherbet present throughout. Day two sees the wine lose its positive attributes from day 1, replaced with a bitter pinch, retaining a mineral note towards the back palate. Length is good. One for drinking now. 88

Tasted on: Sunday 27th October, a Leaf Day
