Rolf Binder Highness Riesling 96awc 2011
"Bright, pale straw-green; the evocative, fragrant bouquet does not prepare you for the exceptional power and mouth-gripping intensity of the palate and its equally exceptional length. Wow, this is great riesling...96" Australian Wine Companion 02/12 "This light, tangy white is centered on lime, grapefruit and floral notes, mingling seamlessly on the dry, refined finish. Drink now through 2018...90" WS 7/12
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
