Gun Metal Riesling 2009
09 Gun Metal Riesling "Long, luscious presence of fruit"

A skinsy, textured riesling with richness and depth. Underpinned by suggestion of bathpowder, its aromas of lime juice of citrus rind precede a broad, generous and chalky palate whose long, luscious presence of fruit culminates in a dry, austere and mineral finish.
2009 Gun Metal Riesling "Really precise and lively!"

So called in reference to the Eden Valley's flinty terroir, this has some nicely struck fine and flinty aromas, lemons and nashi pears - pretty fresh. The palate's righ on point, with sizzling lemon and lime citrus flavours. Really precise and lively!
09 Gun Metal Riesling "invigorating and refreshing"
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front on 14-Dec-2009
I normally like to taste Riesling over a couple of days although this was only given a quick once over, seeing as I had to dash off on holidays. A quick look was all it took, convinced I was quickly, as I have been with most 2009 SA Rieslings.
It's a pretty wine with a bath products fragrance, but also tight, dry and precise - its feet firmly grounded on a floor made of wet slate and stone. Has lime and length, plus a little mango richness. The Gin and Tonic aftertaste is invigorating and refreshing. Very good.
