Zeppelin Eden Valley Riesling 2011

A lot of people are turning their heads towards Riesling, and seriously, why wouldn't you! There is so much to like about this versatile variety, and made well, it can be mind blowing.

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.
