If only we could leap forward 10 years sometimes. Aged Riesling a a joy to behold and something tells me the Bests Great Western 2015 Riesling will develop into a beauty.
At the present time on the nose there’s lemon curd, juicy red apple, and subtle floral bath salts in the background. While not exactly leaping from the glass (possibly a little too cool) its still interesting and alluring.
On the palate of the Bests Great Western Riesling, the first thing noticed is the sweetness. More than a hint, but in no way overriding. Definitely in the off dry category or possibly ‘halbtrocken’ for those Rieslings freaks.
Ripe mandarin and lime citrus, a little kick of acid balancing it all. Red apple again makes an appearance, making it full and round. The sweetness adequately countered a good hit of chilli in a Vietnamese chicken salad.
