2017 Henschke ‘Julius’ Riesling
Eden Valley, South Australia
Concentrated white currants, lemons, limes and grapefruit zest, with hints of frangipani and green peppercorns. The palate is pure and bursting with ripe limes and succulent white currant flavours, with layered mineral talc-like texture and pure lines of zesty acidity for a very long, fine, dry finish.
“Rich and layered, with a mix of Rose’s lime and Meyer lemon fruit flavours. That the balance of flavours and length are excellent is no surprise given the alcohol, pH and titratable acidity are all text book. Hard work in the vineyard has paid off handsomely.” James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019, August 2018
