St. Hallet, Riesling, Eden Valley, Australia, 750ml
Light, crisp, dry and refreshing, it’s very hard to look past these delicate white wines, especially when fresh seafood is on the menu. St Hallett are privy to some of the finest Eden Valley sites for riesling, unveiling all the pristine classic citrus, floral and spice characters of this noble variety. Fragrant, flowery lemon blossom bouquet is a bright start, filled with promise, but it is the persistent intensity of the palate, strongly reminiscent of a top Rheingau riesling, that transfixes one’s taste buds. This is a terrific wine that will flourish no matter how long it gets lost in the cellar.
