I’ve liked some of the Shortlist Riesling previously, yet this is looks ordinary – just picked too early and more angular than ever.
Toasty terpenes and quite forward (which is surprising given the early picking – some exposed bunches/average canopies I suspect), there is loads of acid here but little in the way of flavour – it’s super fresh but I just can’t see anything to really grab hold of.
May make reasonable old bones, but no flavour at present.
Tasted: October 2014
Would I buy it? No.
