For the cellar

santa-dsas-henty-riesling-2015Santa & D’Sas Henty Riesling 2015, Henty, AUD $30

From the region that gives us Seppelt Drumborg wines, this pale straw-green riesling is very fresh and youthful, bright and lively, with lime leaf, nettle and green herb aromas. A fragrant cool-grown style with intensity, softness and restraint; good line and length. It will cellar brilliantly. (Screwcap)
