Something that’s ‘in the limelight’ is the focus of attention – which will certainly be the case with our Riesling! The name hints of its citrus lime top notes and gives an impression of the fresh and luscious fruit flavours beneath.

2009 Vintage
This medium-dry wine has intense aromas of kaffir lime, flint and gun-smoke. The palate opens with a burst of sweet ripe citrus fruit which lingers and then is refreshingly balanced by a steely but still delicate fresh acidity.

2010 Vintage
This elegant medium-dry Riesling has aromas of crushed lime, flint and five-spice. The palate is delicate yet vibrant and its ripe citrus sweetness is balanced by the coolness of white flowers.

2011 Vintage
This medium-dry Riesling has refreshing aromas of kaffir lime, lemongrass and jasmine. The delicate and lively palate is rich in flavours of sweet ripe citrus, lime juice and rockmelon which unfold across the palate. The fruit sweetness is balanced by fresh mineral acidity.

2012 Vintage
A medium-dry Riesling with kaffir lime, paw paw and sherbet aromas behind which a more flinty complexity exists. The palate begins with a delicate sweetness and refreshing honeysuckle acidity then finishes with hints of orange zest and sweet tropical fruit.

2013 Vintage
This medium dry Riesling has lifted floral and hazelnut aromas along with typical varietal notes of lime, lemon zest and flint. The delicate palate has a polished and vibrant acidity which is beautifully balanced by the sweetness. An elegant finish which lingers with hints of sweet red apple and meringue.
