Pike’s 32nd release of their most important and popular wine – the Riesling Traditionale 2016. Pristine aromas of lime, lemon and grapefruit dominate initially, with some gentle floral notes kicking in behind these and just a suggestion of wet slate/stones too. Very typical and very attractive. The palate is fresh, crisp and dry as it always is upon release. The palate is full of the citrus characters aforementioned, well balanced by the zingy acid that provides much of the drive to the finish, which is clean and dry with just a hint of textural grip. Traditionale always makes a terrific drink upon release, but 5 -7 years in the cellar will amply reward those who like their Rieslings with some bottle age. Drink with any seafood or white meat, but it also works admirably with gruyere cheese too. Delicious!
