Rockliffe Single Site Riesling 2014

rockliffe riesling 2014

This unassuming Riesling from the wild west exudes more refinement and poise than Hitchcock heroine. From vineyards at Mount Barker in the Great Southern area of Western Australia, it’s zesty, floral, chalky and downright delicious.

The fragrance is a delightful blend of lemon and lime blossom with just a hint of jasmine. In the mouth the green apple takes over, crisp, juicy and tangy, with a smidge of lime juice and a clean long, minerally finish.

But don’t over analyse it – there’s no mystery to solve here. It just tastes good. Pair it with oysters for simplicity, or a fragrant Vietnamese chicken salad for total deliciousness.
