Lowe Wines Nullo Mountain Riesling 2013

Wine-making in the margins.

Good aromatics, strong, all about the citrus: lime, grapefruit and even a little preserved lemon/rind. Fresh, intensive - quite steely, hard - reflecting the 1000+ meters at which it's grown. 

More of the same on the palate, with added acid. Like sucking on an ultra-sharp lemon sherbet. It fair pulls your cheeks in as it races across the palate, symbolic of that intense acid. Yet it's all balanced, coming with a good line of fruit that then gently casts itself off into the distance. Good stuff. 91
