Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling 2013

Complex aromatics here, a combination of fresh baked apple pie with spicy notes; a little cidery touch, Bickford's lime cordial and bath salts.

The palate is a little different too, not your razor Rizza that many of you may be familiar with, a little lees ageing has created a softer, fuller palate profile. Familiar lime still courses through the palate, providing the much sought refreshment that Riesling offers, yet it also comes with textural interest, notes of waxy lemons, powdery/ chalky phenolics. Interest plus.

The acid is inherent too, not immediately, towards the back palate - adding extra energy to the wine. Good persistence here. Like - a lot. 92
