Hewitson Gun Metal Riesling Museum 2013
While Dean’s reds often hog the spotlight, his Gun Metal Riesling has been a go-to at Five Way Cellars for some time. Sourced from a single vineyard high in the Eden Valley in which rocky slate and granite outcrops rise to the surface. Inviting floral aromatics sit alongside classic lime juice and lemon zest fruit. The nose shows a touch of wet stone, but it is only on the palate that the flinty, chalky mineral structure exerts itself fully and tightens up the back end. Buy a dozen and try your best to hide 6 in the cellar to drink in a decade or so. – FWC.
