The Boneline Hellblock Riesling 2019 – Tasting Note – Outstanding

Colour: Pale lemon

Palate: Off-dry, high acidity, medium+ body, medium alcohol, intense flavour intensity of primary – stone fruit (peaches, nectarines), citrus (lime), floral (honeysucle), green fruit (green apple, ripe pear), other (wet stone); tertiary – petrol, ginger, long finish.

Conclusion: Outstanding – the wine presents a complex character with a wide range of primery aromas and flavours, with hints of tertiary aromas and flavours, suggesting that wine has started developing. The off-dry style is well balanced by the zesty acidity, allowing the wine to be refreshing and crisp. Long and intense finish elevate the wine to the outstanding quality.

Bottle ageing: Suitable for bottle ageing – the wine is developing, with evidence of the initial tertiary flavours and aromas. The high acidity, and the intensity and complexity of aromas and flavours, together with the long finish provide the structure for move development in the future.
