This 12 bottle case of Alana Rieslings allows you undertake what is referred to as a "Vertical Tasting".
This type of tasting allows you to taste the differences between the Rieslings spanning four consecutive vintages to really understand the effect variations in climate and cellaring, amongst other things, has on the final product in your glass.
Riesling pairs perfectly with spicy meals.
2015, Alana Estate Riesling
Full, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues, pale edged. The bouquet is softly full with a moderately concentrated heart of lime fruit melded with secondary toast, honey and mineral notes. This has a gentle presence. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and gently mouthfilling with delicate flavours of lime fruit harmoniously intermixed with honied and secondary toasty development notes.
2016, Alana Estate Riesling
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with hints of light gold. The nose is firm and intense with well-packed aromas of lime and lemonade fruit, white and yellow florals, complexed by a thread of toasty secondary development. This has depth and finesse. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has good depth and intensity of ripe lime and lemonade fruit flavours, along with floral and toasty detail.
2017, Alana Estate Riesling
Bright straw-yellow colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very elegant with fresh, light aromas of lime fruit interwoven with subtle notes of honeysuckle and a little muskiness, unfolding chalky mineral elements. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has light fruit flavours of limes entwined with soft floral and herb nuances, along with a little honeysuckle and musk. The palate is slender in expression with moderate depth, and is enlivened by brisk acidity.
2018, Alana Estate Riesling
Elegant and delightfully expressed, the bouquet shows grapefruit, orange peel, lime sorbet and floral characteristics, leading to a finely textured palate that is focused and linear. the wine offers bright fruit intensity and vibrant mouthfeel, beautifully supported by whispering sweetness and racy acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering.
