Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2017

2017 was a mixed vintage, cooler and thus later. Summer rains, warmth and humidity all posed their challenges. A vintage for the assured winemaker, and with something approaching 40 vintages under its belt, the Mitchell Riesling exhibits the hallmarks of the variety and region.

Exuding a classic lime profile, it's more bickford's than Tahitian. There's hints of crisp apple, acidity that cuts a swathe across the palate, and - unusually - there are textural elements, as though the wine has softened a little.

There's a bath salt and mineral undertow that get things racing along too. Zip, zest, verve and swagger. It's got something for all. 92
