Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Riesling, Grampians 2012 $19.99
This is a backward, slow-aging riesling of restrained honey, poached peach and stony mineral aromas. There’s a trace of sweetness, which adds to its accessibility. Delicious and intensely varietal. (12.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap) Score: 92 ★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com
