Castelli Estate The Sum Riesling 2017


This is from Great Southern, WA, the region responsible for producing the 99 point Halliday Wine of the Year 2019.  This riesling has all the hallmarks of the region; a very generous and long palate full of lime and lemony flavours.  Read Halliday's review below, he talks about the lingering aftertaste, the intensity of the flavours and an X-Factor.  Music to any riesling drinker's ear's,in fact read the whole review, it's fantastic:  

"95 Points. Has a little more colour than some, but no cause for concern. This is a high quality riesling, with a floral/blossom bouquet, and a collage of lime and lemon fruit on the palate. The X-factor derives from its tactile qualities that come through clearly on the back-palate and lingering aftertaste, the intensity of the flavours running all the way through to the finish. Drink by: 2030 Date tasted: 11/Sep/2017 Price: $19.00 Alcohol: 12.1%"

Halliday talks about having an X-Factor, what I'll say is that this wine is worth more than its asking price.  You could pay $25 and wouldn't blink an eye.  Prepare for Summer and buy a dozen. It won't disappoint.
