Tribute riesling

Pooley Margaret Pooley Tribute Riesling 2017, Tasmania, AUD $65

This is the reserve style riesling made only in the best years from the old vines on the Pooley family’s Cooinda Vale property. It’s a refined, tight, vital riesling with lemon pith and fresh flower and herb aromas, marvellously piercing and intense on the tongue with great balance and length. It’ll reward even brief cellaring. (Screwcap)
