2016 Khileyre Riesling

$35.00 inc tax

Tasting notes

Woodvale’s flagship Riesling and created in a true Reserve style, the Khileyre is named after Kathleen’s family property. Bone dry, with its searing acid contribution, the nose and palate are all Watervale. A cooler and more elegant vintage, the flavours of lemon curd, tangerines, floral highlights and orange blossom beautifully combine with the additional time in bottle further adding to the wines complexity and textural qualities. A wine with at least 20 years ahead of it to cellar. 

Awards and accolades

Anointed as Woodvale’s ‘flagship’ riesling. It has fruit intensity but it also seems mannered and reserved, even taut. It’s not playing all of its cards up front; some are still pressed to its chest. Lime leaf, bath salts, mineral and florals. It looks to be in a good place, but headed for a better one.
