    Best’s Great Western Riesling 2017

    Bright straw-green, fuller than many of its vintage peers. The length of the palate is exceptional, as is the fluid line of the intertwined citrus fruit and acidity, lime and Meyer lemon fruit. The result is a riesling that will be drunk before its due time, and I would be happy to join forces tonight.

    Best’s Great Western Riesling 2017

    Old vine riesling from the Great Western/Grampians region.
    Fundamentally delicious white wine. Lifted, floral, driven by citrus, soft on the tongue – and it lingers. Kaffir lime, red apple, curry leaf maybe, a spicy/chalky note. A delicate, minute sweetness helps ease the drive of the fruit. Any day, every day.

    Best’s Great Western Riesling 2017

    Light medium-yellow colour with a dried herb, bracken and nettle aroma, fresh and crisp on the palate with a tickle of sweetness and a delicious juiciness. Very good and very approachable already.
