Ripper riesling

Gibson Burkes Hill Riesling 2020, Eden Valley, AUD $35

Very pale lime and lemon hues in the glass. The nose offers lemon sherbet, lime zest and faint pastry notes. Great tension across the palate. A lower alcohol lets sweetness and acid fight it out for dominance, but they are perfectly matched. This carries it long and lingering with a well-matched hint of phenolic grip to dry the finish well. (Screwcap)
