Vanguardist CVR Riesling
Foudre, a few smaller barrels, 100% malolactic, lees work. All a bit different from the mainstream. Comes from the western side of the Churinga vineyard, and the last vintage from this patch, I believe.
Chalky texture, cinnamon and ginger studded green apple, and a kind of dashi/umami thing going on. It’s got zip and rip of acidity, cider apple and preserved lemon, some thickness to the texture, but plenty of tang and zest to go with that. Finish is long, some pith and grip, and sourness as it goes. Quirky thing, but it works well. Plenty of energy and crackle. 94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
