Wine of the Week AU
Nick O’Leary White Rocks Riesling 2016, Canberra District, AUD $37
A pristine, gentle, Canberra District wine sourced from a single vineyard located at the old Lake George shoreline, where the soil is sandy and gravelly. It has an extremely dainty and pretty aroma, with notes of elderflower. The light and delicate palate tastes of gentle lime juice and starfruit. It is a soft and pure wine with defined integrated acidity. A sheer delight to drink, though take care not to over-chill.
Score: 93 ★★★★½
Ageing: Beautiful in its youth, though it has the structure for mid-term ageing
Food: Kingfish and pink grapefruit crudo
