You want a seriously drinkable, varietal Clare Valley Riesling for under $10? Step into this Freya and Jules Riesling 2022.
An Aldi exclusive, this is an advert for the stupendous value of Australian dry Riesling. Varietal lime juice, lemongrass and loads of acidity, it’s a fresh, crisp, limey, smashable summer wine. The palate is a fraction underpowered, but with enough of the bath salts, chalk, lime and proper acid/fruit balance of a much more expensive Watervale Riesling.
Best drinking: now. 17/20, 90/100. 12.5%, $8.99. Aldi website. Would I buy it? Definitely.
