X by Xabregas Figtree Riesling 2014
The drier of the two X by Xabregas ’14 Rieslings and, for mine, the better balanced wine. pH 3.22 Ta 7.35 RS 11g/L.
Water green. Slightly mute nose with just a little melon escaping, juicy palate has better sugar balance than its brother and presents as a genuine fruity white with a nice buzz, if still just a little sweet and chubby to be life changing. Long though, which bumps up the score. Drink: 2015-2023. 17/20, 90/100
Details: 12.2%, Screwcap, $40, Sample
