  • Medium-dry style
  • Crushed Kaffir lime
  • Orange blossom
  • Refreshing acidity

"Fabulously fragrant and inviting, the bouquet shows lemon curd, crunchy apple, grapefruit and floral aromas, followed by a lively palate that is intensely flavoursome, while remaining refined and elegant. Drinking magnificently now. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This Mystery Riesling displays exotic flavours, rich texture and lovely acidity. This delicious example has enticing scents of crushed Kaffir lime leaves, orange blossom and mango, it expands across the palate, is rich and full, yet remains delicate and balanced with a refreshing flinty acidity.

The grapes for this wine are grown on geologically older soils, crushed stones with a portion of clay which imparts stone fruit flavours and Asian spice; with a softer acidity and tremendous mouth texture. Riesling’s great strengths are its ability to be made to the highest quality in a diverse number of styles and to reflect the terrior in which it grows. this ‘single valley’ wine is a true reflection of its terroir.

An excellent wine. HOWEVER we have not yet received the Alana Estate wine. It was ordered on the 10 April and the John Forrest was received on the 21st April.

Exceptional value. Great off dry riesling that lives up to its rating.

First impression very good

Excellent value for money, superbly flavoursome dry Riesling. Not a very long finish but would buy this again at this price.

I’m really enjoying this rare aged Riesling

Joan - 13/05/2020

Pleasant and nicely balanced but developing a hint of aged kerosene characters
