Wine Review: This pale white gold colored dry Riesling from Australia is very good. It opens with a honeysuckle and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, shows very nice gentle acidity and balance. The flavor profile is a tasty citrus blend of lime and tangerine. I also detected hints green apple and touch of pineapple. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This dry Riesling is food friendly, very appealing and easy to quaff. I would serve it slightly chilled this summer on the deck with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass. The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is impeccable. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest. A pleasure to drink right now, this wine will evolve elegantly for many years to come.
