2022; like 2019; was a very dry year and the Riesling crops were the tiniest we’ve ever seen. But what they lacked in volume they made up for in intensity. Pale yellow flecked with green, the 2022 BFG has a beautifully generous nose of apple, apricot, lychee and pear with the palate following suit with buckets of beautifully fresh, vibrant and zingy fruit; apples, lemons and blackcurrants at their mouth-watering best. And as it warms, you might see a little white peach too. Gorgeous to drink on its own but with a weight of fruit that makes it an excellent match for food. And we’re sure it’ll cellar beautifully too for up to 10 years.
Perfect with Kingfish Ceviche, fresh lime, Vietnamese mint and chilli.
Or simply pair it with fish and chips straight out of the butchers paper at the beach.
