Top Tassie riesling

Stargazer Riesling 2017, Tasmania, AUD $35

Its wines like this that show why riesling is one of the greatest varieties on the planet. And in the hands of Samantha Connew, it achieves an enviable height.

This wine is impossibly pure, with elegant citrus aromatics which are both alluring and refreshing. The palate has an ever-so-gentle sweetness that fills the palate but does not dominate the flavour profile. The acidity is refined, long and satisfying. Highly recommended – but you will need to get in quick as there are not many bottles left! (Screwcap)
