Off-dry beauty

Pikes Olga Emmie Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $22

If you like a little sweetness in your wines, then Olga Emmie is for you. It is bursting with dainty blossoms, citrus zest and a dash of bath salts. I enjoy the softness and balance on the palate. Eminently friendly and approachable. Make sure you have a few bottles on hand as the festive season approaches, for those who prefer off-dry styles. (Screwcap)
