Best's Great Western Riesling 2020
The Riesling vines from Great Western produce flavoursome, elegantly structured, spectacularly age-worthy Rieslings which stand confidently alongside some of the most outstanding Australian examples of the variety. In recent times, the style has evolved to match the continental climatic conditions to become a beautifully balanced wine with texture and aromatics.
Color: Brilliant pale straw with a green and gold hue.
Bouquet: A very complex, lifted nose of honeydew melon, jasmine, lavender, lime zest and fresh almonds.
Palate: The piercing acidity is balanced by rounded fresh fruits andlingering almond and honey notes.
Such expressive and fragrant aromas of fresh lemons, sliced pears and apples, as well as wet stones. Lots to like here. The palate has a very intense, mouthwatering core of citrus and white peach, driven by intense acidity. Low-yielding vintage with high-quality grapes. Will age very well. Drink or hold.
