Ridgemill Estate Riesling 2016

Delicate florals - not as prominent as in prior vintages - and I'd declare this vintage seems primarily about citrus: pithy lemon, bitter, grapefruit sharpness. 

Tangy, lively, balanced. Has a suggestion of texture, broader in shape, sense of acid without being razor sharp. Damn fine for slaking a thirst, one of Riesling's primary functions.

Finishes well, talcum and an underlying stony platform. 90
