Zeppelin Eden Valley Riesling 2011
This Riesling doesn't have the bells and whistles as many do, but I can recommend it as a good introduction to the variety.
The fruit is sourced from the Eden Valley and presents lemon and lime aromas and a palate which has some minerality with good fruit. It's not bursting with complexity and is just a good drinking style of Riesling. There is some bitey acid but it's not harsh. A gentle drying finish wraps up the wine nicely with some Bickford's lime cordial flavours.
Enjoy within 3-5 years as an aperitif or with crusty bread, cheese and smoked salmon.
