2022 Great Western Riesling
Colour: Luminescent white gold with a green hue.
Bouquet: White flowers, apricot blossom, lime peel and a hint of vanilla bean.
Palate: Pithy lemons, lime juice and lime sorbet, a touch of residual sweetness with a fresh zingy acidity that leaves a fresh cleansing glow.
Cellaring: The Rieslings of Best’s have a proven ability to mature gracefully for 20 years or more. The youthful freshness on release is so delicious but this wine will enjoy a long life in the cellar. It will gather complex toasty aromas and flavours as the years pass.
Pairing: Drink with seared scallops; fresh goats curd on sour dough croutons; Honeydew melon and prosciutto
Vintage: Vintage 2022 began with a very cool spring, misty conditions and low hanging fog. Fruit flowering took some time due to the cooler conditions which is typical for the region after a larger vintage in 2021. Low crops resulted in high concentration of flavour in both the Great Western and Rhymney Riesling vineyards.
