Rippon Rippon Mature Vine Riesling 2020

Concentration, power, intensity, drive. All that and more. Incredible wine for its detail and energy, so thirst-quenching too; a triumph. Scents of lemon-lime, dried apple, brambles and blackcurrants, faintest honey. Flavours similar, slippery and then builds into a fine, powdery pucker, then the cavalcade of lime-minerally acidity finishes things beautifully. Feels built for the long haul, despite drinking superbly now.Rated : 95 Points,

Lime zest, lemon blossom, white peach, flint and white pepper on the nose. Medium-bodied with sharp, bracing acidity. So vibrant and compact with a mineral backbone. Really minerally, tart and dry on the finish.
Better from 2023. – James Suckling
