Rieslingfreak No.10 Zenit Riesling 2017
The wine has a rich and intense bouquet that evokes all the regions; stone fruit and citrus from Clare, sweet spice from Eden Valley and green apple from Polish Hill River. The palate is generous, yet refined; orange zest, slate, minerals, sweet spice, zesty citrus and salivating acid”. Winemaker, John Hughes.
“There’s an interesting contrast here – hints of riper fruit in amongst more classical grapefruit. Excellent intensity, very linear. Maybe a little too driving in its chugging acidity – it could scare some off with its dryness. But such excellent purity, with plenty of ripe fruit to match. Just delicious wine. Best drinking: 2017-whenever. 11.5%, $45. Would I buy it? Absolutely”.
18.5/20, 94/100. Andrew Graham. Oz Wine Review. Aug 29th 2017.
