Soul Growers Riesling 2011

This is the first Riesling release from Soul Growers, and a mighty start they have made.

The fruit comes from just outside the Eden Valley.

A Riesling that is not high on acid and very approachable. Twelve months in the bottle has helped here and the wine gives me the feeling it has aged slightly better than the 12 months of age it is.

Crisp granny smith apple and washed stone aromas. The fruit is beautifully balanced with some good texture. All usual suspects are apparent, citrusy goodness but the bonus being less acid kick. Acid is present but well balanced.

Finishes with a good little zip. Perfect for spring time. Even better in summer. What's more, another quality Riesling for $20 or less which will easily age for ten years.

Drink more Riesling!
