Dinner for a 50th wedding anniversary (Clooney Restaurant, Auckland, New Zealand): Tightly defined and refined Aussie riesling with an intense inner core of fruit. Tangy acids, lime peel, honey and the barest hint of petrol, combined with power and a long resolved finish add up to a first-class riesling. This opened beautifully during the evening and matched well to a citrus cured salmon dish and a chlorophyl flavored mixed grain risotto.
Tasted as sample from winery: Pale and whistle clean with very typical 'citrus' fruits and fresh lemon rind aromas. A tight line of refreshing acid and nice drive to the tart, limey finish. Should develop over a good handful of years. One of the better releases of this wine.
