Variety Riesling
RRP 24
Food match Stir-fried squid, sushi.

Lovely varietal purity offering delicate floral, lime zest and slatey aromas. It's not quite dry in the Australian sense, with a beautifully managed whisper of fruit sweetness woven through steely structure and high acidity. Delicious. (Screw cap, 12.5 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? Yes, one to five years.

Stockists include Prince Wine Store, South Melbourne.
