Riesling from Other
Review Date : 27-Jul-2017
A unique wine, the creation of Chris Archer, 100% Riesling, carbonated, and if anything, more akin a Prosecco than any other sparkling wine. Made using the solera system also, and each ‘bottling’ run quite individual. The blend is continually evolving, but the wine remains essentially the same, though there are differences in taste to the different runs. This run is based on 60% Waipara fruit and 40% Watervale, fermented to 10.0% alc. and 32 g/L RS. Bright, light straw colour. This has a nose of fresh lime and white floral fruit, a touch of toasty terpenes, the Australian fruit prevailing. Mediumish to taste, this is soft and light, with flavours of limes, florals and a little honey and toast. Gentle on palate, slight phenolic grip, simple and easy. This was the 250 ml bottle. From 250 ml can, somewhat more harmonious, but lighter in expression. To be enjoyed as a gentle, mild in alcohol, refresher. Don’t get overly serious about this, otherwise you’ll miss the point! 15.5/20 Jul 2017 RRP $6.85
