2012 Robert Stein Mudgee Riesling

robert stein 001Winemaker Jacob Stein was anointed Gourmet Traveller Young Winemaker of the Year last year. He has a clear passion for Riesling and believes it could become Mudgee’s flagship.

Expressive aromatics; ripe lime, frangipani and a hint of bathsalts. Cuts a razor-like swath through the palate with loads of acidity and as a result the energy generated through the line feels a touch forced. It does drive through the front and mid-palate and it lingers, pert with citrus zest. Certainly has the structure to age and really needs time. For lovers of searing styles of Australian Riesling. 91+ Good
