Wine of the Week AU

Ferngrove Cossack Riesling 2017, Frankland River, AUD $23

Top Australian riesling can be outstanding value, and this is an example. It has a lifted floral fragrance and the palate is deliciously juicy; not bone-dry but perfectly harmonized, with refreshing acidity and long, intense fruit flavour. Lovely now and cellar-worthy. (Screwcap)
