Torzi Matthews Riesling 2010, Eden Valley, SA

Pale lemon colour, with youthful nose of clean steely lemon, crushed calcium carbonate rock, pineapple juice and a hint of flint. Intensely flavoured wine with high acidity. Amazing rich, ripe lemon pulp and lime acidity, with linger ripe pineapple. Long finish. If you’re looking for a riesling with the pomp and circumstance of the Austrian royal courts in summer, well this is it! An aristocratic structure, well-balanced and kept in check by the men-in-waiting. Drink now – 2013, then keep till 2020 before finishing it off. 94/100.
