Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from down under opens with green grape and lime bouquet with hints of bee's wax. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic, lively and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lemon-lime. I also detected hints of green apple and orange. The finish is off-dry and its flavors and acidity linger on your tongue for a while. I would pair this Riesling with spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is incredibly perfumed with inviting aromas of frangipani, jasmine, lemon and lime. This theme is continued on the palate and highlighted by a mouthwatering sherbet like character, so typical of good McLaren Vale Riesling. The balance of sweetness and acidity in this wine is a delight. Expect a secondary layer of wet stones, slate, lemon curd and toast to emerge and become more prominent as the wine ages.
