Buy of the Week AU

Mount Majura Vineyard Riesling 2017, Canberra, AUD $29

The colour is mid-to-light straw-yellow and the bouquet is intense and high-toned with lemon juice and lemonade-like nuances. Very bright, alive and intense in the mouth, it has refreshing acidity and a touch of richness before a clean, dry finish. Beautiful now and will age well. (Screwcap)
