So this David Franz is a label I have heard much about but yet to wrap my lips around. Grabbing a bottle was a no brainer and I'm so pleased I was given the opportunity. A super impressive wine it is!
Straight up, the attractive packaging caught the eye. It's quite simply tissue paper wrapped around the bottle and held together by a little white sticker. Classy and different - I like (said in my best Borat voice).
And the wine? This just proves the bargain Riesling is in retail land, mind you, this has 25% Semillon thrown in for good measure.
Freshly cut green apple, lime cordial and lime pith aromas. There's a river stone minerality throughout and those aromas flow seamlessly to the palate delivering buckets of flavour.
A long and flavoursome finish wrapped up a superb wine. Cellaring is certainly an option here as it will easily sit for a decade. But I just loved the freshness, so there is no reason not to indulge right now.
