GEOFF WEAVER - Riesling 2004Australian White Wine
Following a warm March they were faced with a cool and wet April. Despite this their low crop vines fully matured the grapes. Ripeness is crucial for quality wine. Low crop levels are the key to ripen grapes of real concentration and flavour.
Fragrant, lime fruit with floral and citrus overtones. Gently flavoured with the fruit elements apparent on the nose carrying through to the palate. Fine fruit with a mineral edge and a crisp finish. Even, mouthfilling, lingering flavour.
The overall impression is delicate and savoury. Wonderfully long and subtle flavour.
Ideal with seafood but can be enjoyed with a wide range of foods or on its own. Best with subtly flavoured rather than heavy foods.
