Alkoomi White Label Riesling 2017, Frankland River, AUD $15

Alkoomi has a great record with riesling and the prices are modest. This has powerful, clean, fresh aromas of lemon and lime; the palate is soft and fruity while finishing clean, dry and refreshing. It doesn’t have great length but who cares at this price? A fine glass of riesling. (Screwcap)
