Wine Review: For those in search of something different from Australia, try this pale straw, off-dry Riesling. It has Bartlett pear, floral aromas and wet slate on the nose. On the palate, it is medium bodied and has medium acidity with some surprising effervescence. The bubbles balance the sweetness nicely. Flavors of apple, lime, honey and ripe pear with nicely integrated minerality. The finish is moderate in length. This Riesling would be a nice sipping option on a hot day or pair with Indian Chicken Vindaloo. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Not for the faint of heart, this zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of freshly cut lime, white rose petals and a hint of fennel. With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, it's a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes...or simply on its own. Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quickly - and have you reaching for another.
