james suckling: limefinger “the learnings” watervale riesling 2020

This is Neil Pike’s first foray into winemaking, after selling out of the family wine business in 2019. It’s a parcel from a Watervale vineyard and delivers expressive florals and lime aromas, ahead of a cleverly tuned palate that has crisp, powerful and concentrated lime and mineral flavors, with thrilling acidity and smooth-honed texure. A great riesling. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

5 stars – 96 points.
