I was trying to roughly work out when I started getting into Riesling. I recall talking to a mate’s dad many years ago about the fact I didn’t drink white wine. I met my mate in late 2004 so it had to have been after that year. I can’t even recall when I first tried it or the circumstances. I can only think it was strongly suggested by someone. If that someone is reading this, please make yourself known to me. I need to show my appreciation with some sort of vinous gift! It’s the least I can do.
If you are not a Riesling drinker but interested in getting interested, this wine is the place to start.
Very aromatic, very rieslingy and very inviting. How’s that sound for starters? And, this ‘Tony Peters favourite of a Riesling’ just keeps on giving when you drink it.
Citrus characters aplenty on the flavour packed palate. It’s lemony and limey and grapefruity and a bit herbal, and the best thing of all, lipsmackingly delicious. The acid is soft and delicate and fills out the palate as it finishes clean, crisp, dry and lovingly long. Big yum factor present in every taste! If you couldn’t tell, I very much enjoyed this wine.
