Buy of the Week AU

Jacob’s Creek Barossa Signature Riesling 2016, Eden Valley, AUD $19.99

A typical, springwater-light riesling from this maker, low in texture or structure but high in aroma and flavour. Fine fragrance of lemon curd and lime leaf; dried wildflowers; a hint of passionfruit. The palate is straightforward, delicate, talcy and dry on the finish. Good value. (Screwcap)
