Vibrant colour. Floral, talc, lime/lemon citrus, slight toast. Fresh & zingy, citrus/mineral-like line, moreish. Food : zingy & long, lifts the florals, very moreish.

Appealing citrus and red apple fruit with medium length that didn?t change much with the food

Pale lemon. Estery lemon, lemon-grass and bathpowder. Light and lively, very fresh acid. Lean palate, short dry finish. Food: Dry palate works well with the food.

Hint of florals and citrus on the nose through to the palate. Crisp, clean and dry. A slight hint of minerality coming through. Great with the Japanese eggplant as this dish tones down the acid and lifts the fruit.

Light, spicy, floral, lemon nose. Light, dry, high acid, direct grapey. Grapey, simple finish. Food made the wine more astringent.

Lovely colour with green hues. The nose shows interesting citrus and citrus blossom aromas without being blousy or clumsy. Very classical Riesling palate, loads of citrus with refreshing acidity. That refreshing acidity works wonderfully well with food.
