Riesling - 2019 Mansfield, Victoria
We in the Aussie Wine Industry have been lamenting the fact that Riesling is the best value and most ignored variety for about 10 years. The value for money available in Australian Riesling at the moment is amazing.
We still don't get the whole Clare Valley Riesling thing and think the best ones come out of cool climates. Portland and High Country Victoria or Tasmania is the place to make them.
This wine is a classic cool climate style with zingy lime and floral aroma and is dry, beautifully clean and refreshing on a summer's day. Pay twice as much for half the wine in any of the trendy varieties.
Try it with freshly shucked oysters from the seafood section.
