Water clear, this is classic Alkoomi Riesling from nose to tail, all kaffir lime and grapefruit, stern acidity and just a little mid palate weight. It’s not an overly intense wine, but the clean, pristine lines are quite attractive. I find it a little tart to finish, though not enough to detract from what is a pretty handy wine.
Good, well priced Frankland River Riesling (and certainly one of the better Alkoomi Rizzas).
Tasted: May 2014
Would I buy it? I’d go thirds in a bottle.
