Hewitson Gun Metal Riesling 2017
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Eden Valley|
Cellar Selection. This is a steely, flinty Riesling set for the long haul, hence the name. At the moment, it's showing a good deal of fruit: lemons, apples and orange peel, on the nose. But the palate is all about the flinty minerality. You could drink this now, but you'd be rewarded for cellaring it for at least 10 years.
Zesty lime notes jump from the glass on the nose of the Hewitson 2017 Gun Metal Riesling. This is classically lean and streamlined on the palate, offering little more at this point than racy lime juice over a bed of crushed stone, but pair it with Coffin Bay oysters (or any raw oysters for that matter) and it will prove the perfect match. It's not the most concentrated example of Eden Valley Riesling, so I'd opt for drinking it young rather than aging it.
Light and crisp, with pear and lime flavors that are appealing and straightforward. Drink now. 250 cases imported.
