The Marl Riesling 2021, Hentley Farm, Eden Valley
This is classic Eden Valley riesling, a pure citrus delight of limes and lemon zest, with tropical notes and gardenia florals. The palate is dry but juicy with a creamy texture & mouthfeel, lovely zingy acidity and a fresh saline edge. This wine is everything to love about riesling, and whilst it’s a lovely drink right now will also be worth cellaring for a few years to see it morph into a more honeyed, toastier version of itself.
