Alkoomi Black Label Riesling 2018

Black Label is typically a highly expressive Riesling from the cool of Franklin River. This vintage is no exception, offering a complex range from the usual lime and kaffir lime through to more specific lemongrass.

Texturally it offers more than your typical line and length merchant, possessing a touch more width and textural presence. The aromatics that were present are also evident on the palate.

A lingering minerality really gives this wine extra carry, leaving a memorable presence on the palate. That’s if you can resist having another glass that is. 92
