Rolf Binder 'Highness' Riesling 2010 lovely Eden Valley Riesling
We love Aussie Riesling and this Eden Valley offering is one of those exceptional bang for the buck offerings. It’s classically dry with a nice detailed, lingering finish and good concentration and zip to the citrusy, lime fruit in a medium weight package. There’s an engaging floral, spicy top note and just a touch of sweetness to balance the racy acidity with ample mid palate fruit weight. This will drink beautifully over the next 2-3 years. The quality and pricing make it a terrific value anyway you look at it.

Rolf Binder’s 2010 Highness Riesling gives an intense nose of lime juice, honeysuckle, white pepper and coriander seed. Dry, light to medium-bodied and with good concentration of citrusy fruit, crisp acid and just a hint of sweetness, it has a long zesty finish. Drink it now to 2015.
