Patina Riesling 2013 (Orange, NSW)
11.2%, Screwcap, $25
Acid hounds rejoice! This grapefruit juice driven style has loads of natural acid. Boatloads. even.
Delicate fruit, a twinkle of honeysuckle and smelling quite pretty, this is bright and youthful but gee it’s dry. I’d like to see this as an older wine – awfully linear – but little joy right now, it just feels unripe.
Tasted: October 2014
Score: 16.5/20, 88/100
Would I buy it? No.
