David Franz 'Eden Edge' Riesling 2017
With 25% Barossa Semillon for added drive and fruit weight. David Franz (son of Peter Lehman) established David Franz Wines in 1998 and deliberately chose not to use the Lehman name. An outstanding Riesling with mineral, flint, green apple and lemon aromas with some considerable drive and intensity of flavor at this price level. A long, fresh and zesty palate with a distinctively chalky finish. Seriously undervalued. Drink this summer and/or cellar 5 years. (We just found a dozen of the 2015 buried away and opened a bottle almost immediately – it looks great with added weight and some hints of age starting to show nicely). – FWC.
