I read a quote by David Bowie recently: “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” He certainly was an enigmatic individual and true to his word. Throughout his career he would push boundaries of convention, be it through his music, his personas, or the costumes he wore. As a fan of his music and, hearing there was going to be a new David Bowie song, I always wondered just how thought provoking it would be.
Pete Dredge is someone who keeps you guessing. Don’t try to pick what you’ll get in the next bottle of wine he produces. He is a winemaker who, at times, is not afraid to push the boundaries, not afraid to try something different to pique your interest, and that’s what he does when he releases his wines. If you’re like me, you can’t wait to see what’s in store when you open the next new release wine because you know “…it won’t be boring.”
This is a very interesting Riesling indeed. A bit of funk ‘n’ fun on the nose cued the curiosity in me. It seems so soft and subtle on the palate to start with but then out comes a delightful citrus tang that takes things up a notch. Delicate acidity, ubiquitously textural and good carry on the palate too as the flavours stick around for a while with every tantalising taste.
