2015 Riesling


2015 may be remembered as one of the great vintages in Canberra; with great fruit intensity, higher-than anticipated yields and above all else, incredible fruit quality. 
This Riesling shows this in vibrant limey characters, crunchy apple acidity and a minerality that gives the palate focus and length. 
This is a wine that will reward cellaring, gaining toasty complexity and depth of character over a decade or more in the bottle.

There has been a considerable uplift at Lark Hill over the last few years, the quality on a constant, welcome, upwards arc. This Riesling, one of of the Lark Hill originals, is right at the forefront of this improvement, looking more and more interesting every vintage.
This ’15 has been to Germany. It’s tasted a few Grosses Gewächs, and then wandered south for a quick Wachau hit. It’s a wine that is driven by blossoms, and white peach and intensity, the strapping, grapefruit acidity matching an underplayed textural width. There’s just a slight, late palate candied fruit element that seems incongruous, but the long goal – the second, third and fourth glasses – are just delicious.
Wonderful Riesling that has charisma, style and flavour. Best drinking: 2015-2025. 18.5/20, 94/100.
