Alkoomi Frankland River Riesling 2013

The 2013 release of Alkoomi's Frankland River Riesling is looking better than I have ever seen it.

Wet pebbles, citrus, zest, blossom and bath minerals. Aromatics are spot on and further enhanced with a suggestion of green tropicals hanging around the back.

Acid punches you from the off, reaching into the furthest corners of the mouth. It's tangy, sour acidity and backed up with with a little kaffir lime freshness. Length is excellent, carries on and on. Beautiful now, will age gracefully. 93
