There are lifted aromas of spicy raisin, apple cider and candle wax.
Through to the mid palate it offers a feisty blend of sour apple, honey scents, ginger and crunchy tannins after which the length fades somewhat but this was something I was prepared to overlook, it was so good.
Should find much appeal with the adventurous, the explorers, the boundary pushers and the dreamers. It's out there, idiosyncratic and not what you'd expect from a Canberra Riesling. Will cellar for 5+ years.
