Penfolds Thomas Hyland Adelaide Riesling Australia 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 This juicy white offers a mouthwatering whoosh of lime blossom-scented pear and apple flavors, lingering effortlessly on the vivid finish. Drink now through 2014. Wine Tasting Notes Pale yellow with lime green hues. The nose shows exotic tropical fruits with floral notes of Jasmine and honey suckle. Subtle savory spice makes an appearance due to the extended yeast lees contact. Quite a full flavored Riesling with varietal citrus fruit and lemon zest. The palate is layered and textural, balanced and full-flavored, with a long mineral structure giving lovely length on the finish.

This Riesling lands nicely on the dry side. Balanced and very enjoyable, with herbal and citrus flare on the nose and palate. Lemon and lime, along with peach and mango, make for unique palate, especially when combined with mineral and vegetable sub-text.
