Yellowish. Kerosene on the nose. Quite sour on the palate. Fruits have already dissipated, leaving hints of minerality and saline. Very dry. Lacks mid-palate intensity and dissipates quite fast on the finish. After some air it became more diluted. Drink up.
Bottle nr. 01587. Tasted over three days. Yellowish colour, with a green tinge. On the 2nd day, the the green tinge was still visible, but the general colour had turned to a full yellow. A kerosene nose to begin. A lot more terpenes than since my previous note, yet these fade with time and almost completely disappear on the third day. Once the kerosene fades, there are floral, yellowish fruit notes which turn pungent with time, with touches of talc, vanilla, grapefruit and anise. Resembles a Rheingau, if one is to ask for a comparison. A complex nose. Despite the obvious, mature Australian cool climate riesling flavour profile, the mouth is almost ascetic. There is still a bit of spritzig here! Good purity. Lacking a bit of oomph, but the slight note of natural sweetness makes me think positively about the wine. Yet the very high lemony acid spoils the overall impression. Adds length over the three days and holds up very well, but the acid makes me restrict my rating to a very good plus (which is a notch above my previous note, due to the greater complexity showing on the nose). This should keep for another 10 years.
