Best's Great Western Riesling 2015

We all know that Riesling should be on more folks' radars right? Well, amongst that great variety should be this example from Best's in Victoria's Great Western region. A consistent performer, a stunning achiever, for twenty-five of your hard earned.

Tropical expression of lime, florals with a little kumquat.

The palate brims with energy, a vibrancy, with the acid cutting a zorro-like swathe across the palate (well, mine at least). Has a semblance of sweetness (without being sweet), lending body and texture. A testament to the fruit, care and love. Drink now or cellar up to 15-20 years. 93
