Floral and grapefruit aromatics give this wine a almost tropical scent. Bright acidic flavour on the palette, brought together with a focused mineral flavour. Perfectly paired with soft cheeses, white fish and poultry, for a light refreshing accompaniment.
From the Winery
This wine is a pale straw with a green hue. Aromatic drive of pink grapefruit, florals, green apple and a lift of tropical guava. Generous flavours of citrus and tropical fruit to open, tied together by a loosely woven framework of zippy acid. A wine of depth and complexity with a light, creamy texture through the middle focused by a lively, mineral finish
"Peter Barry and sons Tom and Sam put a bit of the mongrel into their new riesling. It zigs away from Australia's traditional pure, delicate, lime-like style towards greater ripeness, with notably more body, grip and texture. Later harvesting, partial barrel fermentation in older oak and prolonged ageing on spent yeast cells contributed to the more assertive style. However, it remains bright, fresh, vibrant and recognisably riesling. The intensity of fruit flavour and strong acid backbone suggest good ageing potential. However, it remains to be seen whether the richer texture and grip add to its age-worthiness or bring the wine to early maturity." - Chris Shanahan. Good Food
