Rieslingfreak No.5 Off-Dry Riesling
This is the Off Dry Riesling insomuch that it has 15g/L residual sugar…
Pikes has about 14g/L, this is not your everyday Off Dry Riesling more a dry richer style of Riesling.
The nose is musky (more musk sticks it’s a theme across his wines) with chalky minerally notes. Hints of citrus flower & lime.
This is balanced and super smashable and it zings with lime – sweet lime…its very key lime pie like with a really dry finish.
This is more spicy Asian salad or a curry.
My notes: 2019 was virtually destroyed by weather at the end of vintage, only 30% of the fruit survived. What did survive has been hand loved and is incredible quality.
