A cheapie but a goodie

I’ve recommended this in the past, it is a real bargain. Quality dry Riesling for around an Ayrton (Ayrton Senna, tenner).

Mesh Eden Valley Riesling 2005, Grosset/Hill Smith

It has a pure nose of lime fruit. It even displays a degree of minerality: jolly good! Not overly heavy or over-ripe. The palate is linear and direct, with very good fruit and nice length. It is not terribly complex, but it is refreshing and stylish. At this price you cannot go wrong.

    Yes. you really are on much safer ground avoiding the obvious. I had the Grosset Polish Hills recently. It’s not great as in Great, but it’s pretty good. But the fly spray lingers always.
