Juicy riesling

Xabregas Estate Riesling 2017, Mount Barker, AUD $22

I like the slight touch of sweetness in this wine, which isn’t obvious but is enough to prevent it being austere. The lifted aroma is very fragrant, hinting at lime leaf and fresh herbs. It’s juicy, intense and concentrated on the palate. A powerful wine with ageing potential. (Screwcap)
