Poonawatta The Eden Eden Valley Riesling 2009


Last tasted back in January 2011 - interestingly I gave this a 5 year cellaring window back then. It's just sitting in the transformational zone, taking on the aromas of age: waxy, preserved citrus, showing a little latent white florals.

The palate possesses a little Bickford's lime cordial - in dilute form. In a bit of a hole at present, lacks the verve and presence of youth, or the depth =/ complexity of further age. Still retains quartzy minerality.

Length a qualitative indicator - gentle, yet fulfilling in its promise. 91+
