Cave Spring Estate Riesling 2018

Peter scored this wine: 90/100

Juicy acidity. Apples, lemon and grapefruit. Floral nose of spring blossoms, apples and “tennis balls”. Medium finish with bright acidity, some spice and a slight touch of (pleasing) herbaceousness. Fresh rainwater. I think it’s great value - would be delicious with raw oysters.

Drinking the 2017 - only 8.5% abv. Beautiful balance of fresh acidity, off-dry, fruity and floral. Very refreshing. Evolving finish as it opens up. This will easily evolve another 10 years. Lovely wine!
