2023 Riesling Bannockburn

Vinous.Com Rebecca Gibb MW April 2024 92

The young 2023 Riesling Bannockburn is initially reductive, which rather distracts from the pure fruit. Get past that to find a Spätlese-like style with sweet apple and floral flavors. While light in body, its residual sugar provides additional volume in the mouth and creates a smooth texture, but it does not become cloying thanks to the cleansing acidity. This is an appetizing style. The flavors remain long after tasting, but Mosel lovers might miss that mineral streak on the finish. Drinking Window: 2024-2029

This was the finest Riesling on display, and I urge you to buy it, but only if you like off-dry styles. Spätlese in feel, with stunning balance and pristine fruit, this is a heavenly wine and one of the most lip-smacking vintages I can remember.
