DiGiorgio Family Wines Kongorong Riesling 2012

The fruit for this wine comes from Kongorong which is just south of Coonawarra in the very south of South Australia.

Red apple peel, lemon zest and citrus flower aromas move to palate which is quite textural. There is almost like an unwooded Chardonnay type mouthfeel. The red apple and slight lemon zest reappear and linger nicely.

An easy drinking wine, but not a varietal type Riesling for me.
