2017 Riesling is “seriously good”

Dr. Owen Bargreen tasted the 2017 Riesling:

92 points

A whiff of petrol really entices, as orange blossom and cantaloupe tones all combine brilliantly on the nose. The palate has just a kiss of sweetness and comes off fat on the tongue, giving this an air of unctuousness. Ripe melon fruits mingle with starfruit, lemon rind, stony minerals and smoky undertones on the palate. Seriously good now, this has another decade of life ahead of it. Drink 2021-2028.

No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
