The 2023 Bin 51 Riesling leads with an austere, searing nose of grilled lime, bath salts, lemon zest, crushed quartz, preserved citrus and pear skin. In the mouth, the wine is fleshy in its way and light on its feet. It’s a beautiful wine, poised without being heavy or concentrated, and there’s a cleansing finish that has a rounded feel to it. It doesn’t unfurl like the 2022 did, but it is so pretty regardless. Flowers. 11% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2038
