Refined rizza

Larry Cherubino Great Southern Riesling 2016, Great Southern, AUD $35

Blended from Porongurup, Frankland River and Mount Barker grapes, this pale, backward riesling has a restrained talcy aroma and a delicate, refined palate. It’s a graceful style all-round. It’s dry and clean on the finish and should age superbly. Or drink it young, with fish. (Screwcap)
