Riesling probably has its origins in Germany, on the banks of the Rhine and Mosel rivers, where it has been cultivated at least as far back as 1435. Alsace in north eastern France is Riesling’s other traditional home. Today, Australia can lay claim to some of the finest Rieslings in the world, with the Clare Valley, Eden Valley and Tasmania earning particular global acclaim.
Fresh apple and lime aromas are followed by an elegant and crisp palate with gentle chalky notes.

“Super value, as ever. Lillies and lemon barley, lime and grapefruit, punch and sure-footed, some crunch and chalkiness in texture, and a refreshing, slightly bitter finish that reminds of gin and tonic with a good hit of lime. Delicious. Good now too.” Gary Walsh

Item Code: ITM3614
“A delightful wine. Textural, laden with flavour, long through the finish and delicious every step of the way. It packs a real flavour punch but it steps lightly; it feels soft. Sweet lime, talc, rose petals, orange blossoms. Quite an exotic thing, it is. It will age but it’s a ripper drink right now.”
Item Code: ITM6582
