Sweet navel orange, Meyer lemon and dominant peach flavours provide a welcome entry. Lemongrass and Bartlett pear chime in to produce a cornucopia of fruit characters that are accentuated by creaminess from the 20% of fruit that was French oak fermented.
The palate is lush and mouth filling, with abundant exotic melon fruits. Generous and sweet fruit on entry, the finish is rich, long and refreshingly dry with a touch of acidity to complement a hint of cardamom spice.
The mouth is in for a treat as only the best Riesling components come together in this 2016 offering. Lime leaf, pear, and white Rainier cherries greet upon entry. Green apple and pronounced granite mineral elements finish off with racy acidity and tension completing what will likely again be the must have Riesling of 2016.
