Pikes Traditionale Riesling, Clare Valley 2014 $26

A baby loaded with potential. The colour is pale and its reserved, appealingly floral bouquet has a youthful yeasty note. The juicy flavour has a tickle of sweetness backed by vibrant acidity. A few months in the cellar will settle it, then drink for 10 years. 11 per cent alcohol. 93/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: pan-fried flathead

Stockists: Five Way Cellars, Sydney; Prince Wine Store, Melbourne
