Ben says

★ Good Wine Sharp (and perhaps a bit short) Riesling that packs a lot of character in its short bursts of flavour that leave you yearning for the next sip. Finger limes, zesty lemon, sour green apple and a linear focus rounds out in the finish with soft, slightly sweet notes of ripe white peach. A very good Riesling for the price.
