The expectation is that expensive wine has to be good but, good wine doesn’t have to always be expensive. Here is a wine to prove that point.
I must admit, the only reason I went for this wine was because it was among other white wines, including a sparkling wine, that didn’t take my fancy. Added to that, I knew the Angove name was synonymous with good quality wines.
It was a little developed colour wise but that didn’t deter me. I’m a big Riesling fan. I was going in anyway.
Quite an aromatic, varietal, citrusy nose so it was off to a very good start for me. Citrusy for sure on the palate. Limes with a hint of lemon and subtle grapefruity tang. It’s nice and delicate without reaching any great heights but, for pete’s sake, look at the price! I must add, it lingered longer than I expected on the palate too. Very nice work.
FYI, it was awarded a bronze medal at the Sydney Royal Wine Show in 2017.
