Shaw Vineyard Estate Riesling 2016



Winemaker Graeme Shaw says the 2016 vintage in the Canberra region was brilliant. This Riesling is littered with lemongrass and limes with plenty of delish factor.

Wade through vibrant aromas of crunchy green apples, white flowers and citrus before a minerally river stone and crunchy green apple roll through. Citrus fruits are lively and bursting with freshness though there is textural appeal. There's a touch of saltiness about the wine too. Neatly balanced with crisp acid to finish, I'd happily have a couple of glasses.

Drink now but will age long term if desired.
