2022 Howard Park Flint Rock Riesling
5 in stock
Riesling is a true hero of the Great Southern – demanding, sensitive yet tough enough to thrive in the vagaries of this cool, dry climate. Wines crafted from Riesling are exceptionally revealing and critical of the environment in which they grow and the human interactions engaged to create them.
A true Great Southern Riesling, it is both delicate and lithe, yet filled with an abundance of lively, zesty aromas, alluring floral and confectionary notes as well as an undercurrent of chalky minerality. Finger lime, Granny Smith apple, sea spray, honey suckle, orange blossom, and musk stick form a vivacious and irresistible bouquet. The palate is characterised by a fine, porcelain-like structure driven by taut, mouth-watering acid. Bright flavours of Meyer lemon, nashi pear, and white nectarine intermingle adding texture and depth leading into a crisp, dry finish.
Drink with chargrilled calamari, or sweet and sour crispy fish with pickled papaya salad.
Drink now or cellar for up to 7 years.
