2011 X by Xabregas Figtree Riesling
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.
