2012 Mesh Riesling (Eden Valley)
Another cracking Riesling from the 2012 vintage and a fine addition to the Mesh stable.
Incredibly youthful and primary. Intense and beautiful fruit, predominantly lime in flavour. Talc, florals, and a slatey minerality are all nascent at this stage, but will emerge with time. The thing that gets you with this Riesling is its length and precision. It flows perfectly from front palate to back, and then finishes with incredible length. You could drink it now with some seafood, but the quality is such that it deserves a place in the cellar. Being a birth year wine I've decided to stash a few away. Superb Riesling. 4.5 Stars
