Dukes Magpie Hill Reserve Riesling 2021
White pepper, lime flesh and laser-like precision through the finish. Lovely fruit/acid balance. Cellar for 25 years.
From a single vineyard, whole bunch pressed and fermented solely in tank to preserve the pristine freshness endemic to the Rieslings from the area. A super-floral nose leads into a tense and citrus-driven palate. The acidity is saline and omnipresent, curling and flicking around the fruit, shaping it all through the long finish. This has already developed and grown so much in the bottle between this glass and the last (a couple of months prior), that it surely has a very long road ahead of it.
