Jim Barry Florita Riesling 2016

First experience of the Florita, infanticide some might say, yet it's exhibiting some signs of aromatic development, throwing the petroleum like notes that Riesling in an Australian context shows. 

Perhaps some air time, or simply the nature of the beast, and lemongrass, preserved lemons show their hand. Piercing acidity cuts and thrusts, an almost sour tang to it really awakens the senses. It's all lemons and limes up front, with a stone and pebble length carried long on that acidity. 

Aside from that initial aromatics, you could think this a new release. So good. 94
