Bimbadgen MCA Series Riesling 2012
Bimbadgen, from the Hunter Valley, sourced this fruit and have weaved some magic.
Plenty of citrus, field flowers, chalkiness and a smidge of honey set the scene.
Clean and fresh sums up the palate. The acid and flavours are well balanced. What you get though is different to South Australian Rieslings.
Plenty of fruit here (not that I'm suggesting there is not enough fruit in SA Riesling), less minerality kick and the acid is softer. Gentle apple flavours with subtle honey, there is also some textural interest. A little zesty zip to cap it off and it's happy days.
You could cellar this for the medium term, but why? It's great how it is, and value for $26.
I like it. Lots! ....And the label is pretty cool too.
