Best’s Riesling customarily has a whisker of sweetness. It’s part of its appeal. It has an excellent quality record too. This is a little less shouty than the 2012 but it’s none the lesser for it. It’s a wine, simply, of balance and length. It’s comfortable in its skin. It tastes of lime and melon with floral notes drifting throughout. Chalky, textural finish. Beautiful from every angle.

My first look at a wine made solely under the direction of Justin Purser at Best’s. It’s in the house style – balanced residual sugar adding body and roundness. Ultra floral. White flowers bloom from the bottle before it even hits the glass. There is a good line of acidity allowing finger limes and papaya to be elucidated in a convincing manner. A touch of grip on the finish. A little more intensity would garner higher points but I enjoyed this a lot and in the proper context it would be a terrific wine to serve.
