Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Riesling 2014
A wine of two halves. It starts so well – classic limey aromatics that bounce out of the glass with that Bickfords Watervale ripeness. But the explosive aromatics cover a sharply drawn, hard palate that lacks the flesh that the nose suggests, finishing coarse and angular.
So much promise, just let down in the delivery. It’s going to get better, but no fun for now.
