Brash Higgins SM/R Semillon Riesling 2013

There are some wines that just strike a chord, that transport you somewhere else, invoke memories of happy times. As much as I try to look at each wine with fresh eyes, proclivities and experiences all add up to provide frames of reference with which one judges.

Smells chalky with a touch of root vegetable, forming to remind me of Spring days, of emerging from the cold of Winter to warmer days. Let it warm a little to reveal snow pea and fresh herbs (specifically a little continental parsley). 

Briny, sea spray - summer's on the coast - textural, with an inherent drinkability; citrus and a little lychee reveal themselves too. Generous length, has me thinking - yet yearning to drink. A good wine. 90
