Trophy winners both. The Wigan is named after winemaker Andrew Wigan and hails from the Eden Valley. At six years old, the 2008 is remarkably youthful and is travelling nicely. There is just a hint of the toasted honeyed depths to come at this time amongst the lime zest and juice with a floral lift and a savoury finish. There is a lovely silkiness to this elegant riesling. Plenty of life left, although it is looking fine now.
The 2010 has more upfront mineral slate to the fresh lemon lime although there is that hit of savouriness on the finish. The structure is gentle on the acid and seems fleshier than previous vintages. These are remarkable wines for the price. Enjoy their fresh appeal now or cellar.
