Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling 2017
The fruit for the No.2 was fermented to dryness and is a moderate 12% (check) alcohol, which I like. The wine really showcases the Polish Hill River with its minerally profile, crisp acid and underlying fresh citrus characters. Delicate blossom aromas interlaced with flavours of apple, green lemon and grapefruit.
“This year the wine shows generosity. Although it still has its high acid and flinty notes, the wine shows flavours of ripe citrus, kaffir lime, and green apples. The wine has good fruit and acid balance. Drinks well now and will reward with long term cellaring.” John Hughes, Winemaker.
