Wine of the Week AU

Bellarmine Select Riesling 2016, Pemberton, AUD $26

Mid-straw colour. Glorious aromatics of pomelo, mandarin and ruby grapefruit. The palate is beautifully full and weighty with gentle integrated sweetness, citrus flavours and a refined acid vein. There is a gentle background smokiness which adds to the wine’s charm, plus it has a naturally low alcohol of 7%. A composed, flavoursome, varietally expressive wine. Serve as a dessert wine, with a cheese platter or as a well-chilled aperitif. (Screwcap)
