As impressed as I've been with practically the entire Yalumba portfolio lately, I was equally impressed by the warm welcome I received at their cellar door recently. Thanks for the bottle Amanda!

Rather fresh, lightly fragrant aromas of melon, paw paw and citrus marmalade emanate from Heggies' 2007 Botrytis Riesling, with further notes of botrytis funk and lemon sherbet also apparent. A brimming, juicy front palate bursts with nicely concentrated and luscious, clear mineral, lemon, honey and sweet vanilla flavours, before finishing fresh with a wash of soft acids.

ü An easy drinking, cleanly balanced botrytis riesling which sits nicely in the 'not too sweet but sweet enough' side of dessert wines. Drink to 2011.
90 points
