Cooks Lot Riesling 2013

I lined this up with a few Rieslings and it didn't stack up.

Green apple skin, canned apples, white flowers and some lemon presented decent aromas. The palate was clean, crisp and drying. Some textural character with finger lime acid tightness evident but there was a spicy element which just didn't seem to be a neat fit. Green apple crunch on the finish.

You could easily have this with fish and chips, however, the Riesling market is very competitive around the $20 mark and for your hard earned you can do better.
