Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling
The Hanlin Hill Vineyard is planted on predominantly red-brown loam over slate and is up to 550 metres above sea level. This vineyard has produced a very full flavoured dry slatey mineral Riesling, since the style first emerged with the first Riesling from Hanlin Hill in 1979.
The 2016 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is a bright delicate fragrant dry wine. The aroma has abundant citrus blossom and hints of spice and tropical highlights. The palate has beaut searing acidity, cut apples and lemon-lime intensity, and then finishes with sweet fruit and chalkiness. Beautifully crisp and focussed, the 2016 Hanlin Hill Riesling is a wonderful drink now wine, but one that will age gracefully for many decades, a testament to the great Hanlin Hill Vineyard in a great year.
