Restrained riesling

Henschke Green’s Hill Riesling 2017, Adelaide Hills, AUD $35

This fresh, restrained riesling seems to be developing slowly and is superbly taut and ultra-refined. There’s a multiplicity of floral aromas and great harmony; the palate flavour is delicate, intense and long-lasting. (Screwcap)
