The Rippon Jeunesse Young Vine Riesling 2019 vintage is a stellar release; a kaleidoscope of flavours from lime to grapefruit, juicy and tart and sweet-sour all at once. So much length, great texture with an almost crunchy finish. Brilliant expression of riesling. As with the Jeunesse Pinot Noir, this is a wine of exuberance and life; this is a Riesling that speaks of its variety, of its fruit and not yet of its soils. As such, it is a wine best enjoyed in its youth.

This is a tasty number. It shows some light, savoury characters, sourdough dough and the like, but the mainstay is a kaleidoscope of citrus flavours, sweet, sour, juicy, tart, bright, racy, all meshed together in a succulent yet gently slippery way. It has length, stacks of flavour though a soft touch and it finishes bright and crunchy. It feels vibrant and cheery, fun to drink, but there’s a serious side too. It’s a complex and very good riesling which lots of personality.
