Castle Rock Porongurup Riesling 2019

Grapefruit, bath salts, a tropical periphery: think guava, a suggestion of Passionfruit perhaps.

Grapefruit acidity presents itself early, lemon barley even. Takes me back to watching Wimbledon as a kid that does. Acidity a touch nervy at this early juncture, one suggests it will settle. 

It's tense, poised, as if walking a razor wire tightrope - nervous tension like. I like it. A lot. 93
