Taylor's Jaraman 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

Somewhat closed initially (comparatively to Wine #1), hints of celeriac/fennel, a more  'woody' aromatic profile. Opens up touches of bickfords lime present themselves, with time crushed candies. Day two sees pithy lemon, white florals, even a hint of stonefruit.

The palate shows lime, more than lemon, touch of marmalade - not oxidised - a little phenolic pinch. Day two sees the wine exhibit greater intensity, grapefruit acidity with mineral. The length is OK, not outstanding, but it more than stands up. 90

Tasted on: Sunday 27th October, a Leaf Day
Source: Sample
Price: $24.50
