Sapling Yard, Lake George Riesling 2021

This 2021 Sapling Yard Lake George Riesling crafted by winemakers Malcolm Burdett and Carla Rodeghiero, is a generously fragrant and vibrantly flavoursome Riesling still in its nappy stage.
Sourced from the cool climate vineyards of Lake George [NSW] it already delivers a aromatic punch of green pear and lime.
The relatively lowish [11%] alcohol allows for some residual sweetness which coats the tastebuds.
The fulsome flavours of mixed herbs and wafts of Turkish delight supported by citrussy acids elicit immediate appeal.
It's already well-rounded and balanced and will undoubtedly prove to be a commercial favourite. It will also benefit from some cellaring.
