Whicher Ridge Riesling 2011 (Frankland River, WA)
12.5%, Screwcap, $28
I do love it when a back label gets the tasting notes 'right'. Makes my job easy. 'Lime, grapefruit and freshly cut pear' so says the back label which was about perfect.
I gave this a proper going over at Golden Century with an assortment of fried things. Coped ok, although the acidity is a bit on the teeth enamel stripping side....
There is some sweeter development to that grapefruit actually, but only a tinge. Natural citrussy acidity a highlight on what is a crisp, breadfruit and lemon palate, making for a clean and long citrussy Riesling that teeters between too much acidity and the right sort of lime cordial palate cleanser. Good
Score: 17/20 90/100
Would I buy it? Not really
Five great value summer reds
