Tim Adams Botrytis Riesling 2006

Local botrytis rieslings seem often to be non-cloying, true to the riesling grape and sold at a fair price.  In other words, "good".  Tim Adams' 2006 botrytis riesling is no exception.  At 85g/litre residual sugar, their 2006 vintage had an aroma and taste of lemon and lime skins - not the pithy bits, but the rind itself.  It was perhaps somewhat challengingly sour for this reason upon tasting it initially, but it opened out to reveal a well made and enjoyable wine.  85 points.

Abv: 12%
Price: $25 (current vintage, 375ml)
