Bethel Heights 2013 Riesling

Aromas of preserved lemon and green apple with hints of star anise, white pepper, and the faintest wisp of wood smoke. Flavours of Asian pear and lemon zest move over a deeper note of sea salt and chevril. The palate is defined by its lively core of acidity running the length of the wine and continuing to resonate in the long, slate laden finish. A cure for any jaded palate, this Riesling is perfectly dry yet enticingly rich and complex, thanks to our long cool growing season. Some Riesling matches are legendary: when sweet corn is in season, or fresh crab is available, chilled Riesling is a must.
