Aromatic and lemony

Shaw Vineyard Estate Riesling 2017, Canberra District, AUD $30

Intense lime zest and citrus blossom aromatics. The palate is bright and lemony with a good acid line. I enjoy the wine’s delicacy and restraint. A light-chill is all that is needed. If served ice-cold its charms will remain hidden. (Screwcap)
