Culmina 2017 Decora Riesling 750ml
91 points -- Anthony Gismondi
Harvested from the 7th crop of Riesling on Margaret’s Bench, and Latin for pretty or fine, Decora is an intensely aromatic Riesling that whets the palate with mouth-watering acidity. Showing delicate spice, floral, and stone fruit aromas, Decora displays pronounced flavours of citrus, mineral, and stone fruit, creating a wine of outstanding vivacity, delicacy, elegance, and style.
Bursting aromas of nectarine and peach are tempered by subtle ginger spice, acacia flower, and delicate wet stone. Mouth-watering and dry, a juicy, integrated palate follows, balancing subtle minerality and white raspberry flavours with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours. The pithy finish is long and lingering. -- Winemaker
