2014 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling

2014 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling

I cut my teeth on Clare Riesling and Barossa Shiraz. I would always buy this when a special occasion prompted it. I now celebrate differently but always generally enjoy this when I get the chance to try it. Tasted blind. A whiff of lavender and rose quite enticing. Lime juice and more lime.. Not much else to it and doesnt have the length of intensity that I previously remember. Its a few years old now so might be in a flat spot. However I think it might be an off vintage.

Score
