Buy Of The Week AU
Jacob’s Creek Classic Riesling, South Eastern Australia 2015, AUD $12
Floral, citrusy aromas plus mint leaves and lime juice. A trace of yeastiness. The palate is firm, clean and savoury with a searing dryness and bright, refreshing acidity, which adds a little hardness. Food softens it nicely. (12.1 per cent alcohol; screw cap)
