Wine of the Week AU

Pressing Matters R69 Riesling, 2015, Tasmania, AUD $36

An intense, complex nose, with faint florals, honeysuckle and spice, with nuances of green melon and cucumber. The palate is pure and beautiful with intense ripe lemon flavours. This wine is all about the balance achieved between the acidity and the sweetness. It is neither sour or cloying. Instead, it presents as a balanced, harmonious, expressive wine brimming with flavour.

A satisfying and well-crafted medium-sweet style. Simply amazing quality for the price. (Screwcap)
