The Details

Tasting Note Intense aromas of lime and lemon, fresh toast and lime marmalade. Citrus dominant, the palate displays hints of honey, sage oil and marmalade, finishing with a crushed stone minerality. Vibrant and fresh, but with richness and intensity from its 10 years in bottle.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with five-spiced glazed duck breast, seared scallops, and lemon butter sauce, or roasted cauliflower salad.
Treatment The 2011 vintage will be long remembered for its cool temperatures throughout ripening and growing months. This has resulted in a classic Eden Valley Riesling that is delicate and flavourful with generous and balanced natural acidity.

Accolades

96 Points
This 10-year-old museum release is still so fresh and complex, with wet stones and some lime marmalade, as well as chamomile. Rich palate with lime-marmalade flavors and a surge of fresh acidity. Kumquat peel and a late, toasty build to close. Drink now. Screw cap.
