Wine of the Week AU

Kerrigan + Berry Riesling 2016, Mount Barker, AUD $30

This is a youthful, expressive riesling with heady aromas of ripe lemons, cold stones and lemongrass. The palate is quite open and flavoursome, with mid-palate softness and integrated acidity. It is the balance of this wine that makes it such an enjoyable drink, though it is the line which makes it so captivating. Lovely now though will develop richness and complexity with time.
