The 2012 edition of Stephanie Toole’s cult status sticky captures a harmony between crisp citrus zest, gruner-veltliner-like white pepper and exotic lusciousness and profound persistence of sweet honey, juicy peach, persimmon and layers of mixed spice. A savoury ferment note contributes further complexity, underlined by soft, chalky, Watervale minerality.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very pale yellow gold.
Essence of lime, vanilla and spice aromatics.
Beautifully concentrated, complex sweet Riesling, providing bell-clear varietal citrus notes along with stonefruit and attractive florals. Ginger and spice notes dance across the sherbet-like palate which is pristine-clean, light and elegant, bright and long.Easily one of the best Cordon Cuts of the past decade, it is lighter and more tangy than the 2011, with a year or two more cellaring potential.
Serve with foie gras or similar savoury-toned appetisers or citrus & stone-fruit desserts.
