Ottelia Riesling 2018

Riesling from the deep south here, instead of Bayous and tropical humidity, instead think a cool maritime influenced climate, moderated by the Great Southern Ocean. 

Florals in the main, lavender and jasmine notes over citrus, thyme, perhaps a touch of rosemary (certainly fragrant woody herb).  

Bracing acidity certainly softens the drinker up, a minerality that performs its merry jig across the palate, lemon pith and zest. It's certainly an up and at you style, laps up food equal to its verve swagger and zing! 94
