A classic dry riesling that is mouth-wateringly good. The nose displays beautiful lime and floral aromatics. Delightfully vibrant and lively palate with minerally acidity and great length.
Riesling ages beautifully, but also drinks well as a young wine, so it’s always difficult to predict a drink-now date. When young, Holm Oak’s Riesling has loads of lime and floral characters and fine, flinty acidity. As it ages it develops more toasty, honey and stone fruit characters with a hint of kerosene on the nose. If you like wine fresh and aromatic, drink Riesling young; if you like it with more complexity and texture, age it for up to 15 years.
