Region: Coal River Valley Grapes: Riesling First Glance: Taut, Fine, Mineral, Zesty Acclaim: 95pts
The Wine: Initially the nose is a little shy with fresh notes of citrus peel and blossom. The palate is typical Cooinda Vale, refined and elegant with lemon sherbet, cumquat and marmalade. Strong acid profile with a persistent finish.
The Review: Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review - 95pts "Delicate notes of spiced nectarines, fennel, crushed rocks and lime zest lead into a taut palate. The core is simmering with energy, fine chewy phenolics add scaffolding to the intense palate. This is seamless and flowing, an extraordinarily youthful Riesling. The pedigreed fruit is allowed to shine through, thanks to judicious winemaking."
