2018 Foudre Ferment Riesling

2018 Foudre Ferment Riesling
95 points - James Halliday

The aromatic juice is given extended skin contact then wild fermented in a large French oak foudre (barrel) made by the famous cooper Marc Grenier. The resultant wine exhibits both the complexities of a barrel ferment and spontaneous fermentation without the overt oak flavour, due to the large size and subtlety of the foudre.

Colour: Pale straw with hints of silver.

Bouquet: An intriguing nose of florals and citrus, evoking finger lime, elderflowers and wet mill stone.

Palate: A latticework of creamy citrus flavours entwined with the unrelenting drive of steely acidity and powdery minerality.

As Shrek said, it's got layers. An inviting warm, creamy nose with lime, peach and an imaginary hint of passionfruit, wondering if its a left of center sav blanc. Very well rounded on the tongue, creamy, smooth with lime circling the palate. Nice finish with very subtle acid keeping it all together. Each time on opening, different notes arise but returns to a generous creamy mouthfeel on tasting. Intriguing young wine.
