Castelli Porongurup Riesling, Great Southern 2012 $25

This is a beautiful riesling of great detail and complex fragrance. It’s youthfully undeveloped and fresh, with some flinty mineral notes and a touch of buttered-toast development, the taste ultra-refined and delicate yet intense, with great line and balance. Nothing is out of place. Utterly delicious. Now to 2022. 11.7 per cent alcohol. 96/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: snapper quenelles

Stockists: Cremorne Cellars, Rose Bay Drive-In, Palm Beach Wine Co.
