This fascinating wine from Mount Barker, WA, has rich peach and apple custard characters with spice, steel and citrus-like qualities underneath; the palate is ripe and lingering, with a dab of sweetness, good depth and firm backbone. (Screw cap; 12.8 per cent alcohol.)
Ageing? Drink over five years.
Food ideas Barbecue prawns with mango salsa.

    Another excellent example of WA Riesling by an emerging WA producer. Also worth checking out their range of Shiraz.
