2005 Penfolds Reserve Bin Eden Valley Riesling
There are some wines that I taste that really delight my senses and this is a wine that has done just that. The Penfolds Reserve Bin Riesling is made from top notch grapes from the Eden Valley and it displays all the finesse and style expected from Riesling from this region. Whilst it has a tight structure to allow it to age, it is brimming with lively, delicate citrus and blossom characters that need capturing whilst the wine is in its youth. So despite its ageing potential, my advice is to drink this wine now. Pair with fine and delicate cuisine such as white-fleshed fish and garden fresh salads to allow the wine to truly shine.
