Wine Review: The 2014 Rocky Gully Dry Riesling from Australia is pale white gold in colored and opens with a light lychee and petrol bouquet with hints of green apple and wet slate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and mouthwatering with bright acidity. The flavor profile is a lychee and delicate grapefruit blend with notes of minerality and lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Panel suggested that this is a very good summer and beach wine and would pair well with cherrystones or Thai rolls. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Frankland Estate's Rocky Gully Riesling features exotic fruit, subtle apple and lime aromas with a touch of nectarine and stone fruits, spice and minerality providing appealing complexity. The delicate front palate builds with generosity over the palate. Crisp, refreshing acidity and a spicy ironstone flintiness/minerality gives the wine weight, leading to a finish that is long and complex. Made to enjoy in its youth, leading to a finish that is long and complex. Made to enjoy in its youth, the Rocky Gully Riesling displays generosity of fruit flavor whilst maintaining delicacy on the palate. This wine is ideally served chilled and is a perfect aperitif and can be easily paired with a wide range of foods including seafood and dishes with light spice.
