2018 Bin 51 Riesling, Penfolds, South Australia

The nose on this is very classic Australian Riesling, with lime blossom and orange spices. There’s good extract here, and lovely width on the palate. Nice tension, quite mineral but there is a ripeness to the fruit. There’s lemon sherbet and crunchy apples on the fine finish.

TASTING NOTES

Classic lime sherbet notes mark the nose of the 2018 Riesling Bin 51. It's leafy and fresh, then folds in hints of riper fruit on the palate, such as peach and pear. Crushed stone and wet moss give it a firm grounding in the earth as well. Crisp, lean and long, it shimmers with positive sunshine and energy, vibrant and lingering on the finish.
