Tunkalilla Vineyard Riesling 2009


2009 Tunkalilla Vineyard Riesling is from a vintage just cooler than average and significantly warmer and earlier than 2008. The warmer vintage has introduced some peach and tropical aromas to go with the floral and citrus and the flavours are richer and less savoury than for the 2008. A trace more residual sugar complements the fruit sweetness and offsets the natural acid.
