Rockford Hand Picked Riesling 2010

I admit I haven't been entirely convinced by some of Rockford's non "Basket Press" offerings in the past (I am a card carrying fan of that wine), but more recently I seem to be tasting some very good wines from the broader Rockford stable.  This riesling from the Eden Valley for example presented very well indeed.  Yellow gold in colour, it has aromatics of steel, minerals and gunflint.  The palate has a restrained lemon and lime expression, with an almost smokey minerally character.  This is a good, refined and balanced riesling that I suspect will last rather a long time.  Good
