The Sum Riesling
Castelli's 'The Sum' series continues to make new ground on creating amazing wine under $20.
The aromatics of the 2020 vintage are typical of the two great Riesling areas: Mt Barker region with a generous supply of lifted orange blossom and rose petals underlying crushed limes and white peach characters, whilst Frankland River contributes exciting grapefruit zest with hints of spice. These flavours are carried through onto a tightly wound palate that has a lovely lime/citrus like essence. As with most Great Southern Rieslings, this wine is lovely in its youth, however, for those with patience the reward from 6-8 years careful cellaring will be worth it.
Partners in Wine WA Notes: A great valued WA Riesling for sure. Zesty body of lemon & lime.
