Appearance: Brilliant, pale green;
Aroma: Gentle aromas of kaffir lime, lemon and green apple with just a touch of flint.
Palate: Fresh up-front lime/lemon flavours wrapped around a core of bright citrus acidity. A subtle talc-like texture adds interest and ensures the wine finishes long and dry.
Summary: Will provide delicious early drinking for those who like crisp, young rieslings and should age gracefully with 5-7 years in the cellar.

Limefinger, he’s the man
The man with the limey touch.
It’s quite exotic with perfume of lemongrass and kaffir lime, and lime and green apple flavour. It’s not hard or wince-inducing in style, with softness and good flavour delivered in a gentle, but still firm style. Fresh, blossomy and limey on a long chalky finish. A lovely drink. So much charm and appeal. Easy to love.
