Kanta - Egon Müller Riesling 2015, Adelaide Hills, Australia
Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Riesling from Adelaide Hills, Australia. 12.0% ABV.
Very pale colour, with a marked stony aroma and a hint of citrus. Clean and fine-boned on the palate, but with pure and delicate Riesling lemon and mineral flavours.
Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'Some elegant ripe fruit here, with apple, stone fruit and citrus joined by some mineral aromas and a petrol note. This has a great, soft texture with a fruit-led mineral finish.' Daniel Eriksen, Anglian Country Inns. 'This is ageing very gracefully, with very subtle hints of petrol. Very good for a serious list.' Martin Lam, team leader.
