Wine of the Week AU

Stefano Lubiana Riesling 2016, Tasmania, AUD $35

Intensity is the hallmark of this beautiful, expressive, single vineyard wine. The nose is rich and powerful with ripe lime and a hint of spiced honey. The palate is generous and mouth-filling with length and persistence, plus a little well-integrated sweetness. Delicious on its own though it has the strength and conviction to handle the most flavoursome of foods. (Screwcap)
