Pungent attractive nose full of white flowers and ripe lemons, underpinned by a mineral flinty core. The dry palate has a lovely sustained texture and length with well-balanced acidity creating a moreish wine. Excellent back label explains the winemaking – short amount of skin contact followed by fermentation in old French oak and matured on lees for 3 months.
Lyons Will Estate Riesling 2022, Macedon Ranges, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
